- Last checked July 2021. Everything OK except the plaques at E and R are missing. The cafe is open for take-away. However, several plaques are beginning to suffer – Q is damaged, D,F,Z,AA faded or nibbled.
- It will be interesting to see if the animals that have been nibbling the plaques have another go at the replacements – if you have any ideas what the animals are, let us know – theories include muntjac deer, squirrels and rats, but this is the only park it happens in, and why only a few plaques?
- Checker comments: Alderley Edge offers a great path network and some forays into the forest to find the posts.
- NB. controls in this park are almost all on substantial square posts with a plaque mounted on the flat top – this may make it tricky for very small people to see.
