- Last checked January 2020 – everything OK.
- 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 !
- 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.
Vegetation during summer makes several posts more challenging to find, e.g. F, G, S, V, W, Q and K. In particular, H and Y may not be visible.
