- With great reluctance, GMOA have decided to give up trying to maintain this park. It has been the subject of significant and repeated vandalism, and fly tipping is an issue around some of the control sites. You can still have maps if you want them, but you have been warned!
- Final check was done in January 2017. The course is extremely wet and several posts are missing – K, Z, Q, W, C and U. There is a new fence and house in the area of G (not yet mapped) which mean that it is no longer visible.
