- Last checked April 2022. Everything OK, though the path from U to S is very steep and slippy.
- nb. the missing post A has been replaced with a plaque on the back of the nearby bench, and the map updated accordingly.
- Rhododendron clearing has significantly reduced the size of some of the mapped thickets.
- Posts H, M, U may be hard to find in summer undergrowth.
Orienteering map details
- A4 Landscape, Scale 1:4000. Last updated April 2022.
- The Start/Finish is about 200m from the car park, across the field, by a shelter. Though for orienteering it may be better to use the plentiful road-side parking near the Start/Finish.
