- Last checked September 2021 – everything OK. There’s a sign at control J asking people to keep to the path.
- Significant refresh of the course Dec 2019 – post Y moved to new location, posts N, L, V, H, G, F replaced with plaques on nearby posts/fences, everything repainted and red and white plaques added. Make sure you have the latest map ! The old plaque V is visible, but not for long.
- Postwatcher comments: Direct path from E to S is currently overgrown with brambles and is not recommended. Path along fence outside field from C to towards D is overgrown but passable.
