  • Course Status

  • Last checked April 2024.  Everything OK, though note that post W has moved 30m North along the path – Get a new map !
  • nb.  (summer 2023) G has been moved out of the vegetation SE to a little knoll 20m away. 
  • What was post U is now a plaque on a bench the other side of the path. 
  • 14 Oct 2021 new Start/Finish plaque installed on a bench a few metres East of where the old post was. 
  • Note that control U was re-instated across the path from its old position, and post A has been moved 25m across to a visible spot on the edge of the adjacent patch of woods.
  • Beware the Giant Hogweed, which can give a long-lasting blistering rash, though it looks like it may have been treated with something.
  • Major infestation of rose-bay willow herb and Himalayan balsam may make some controls difficult to find in late summer.
  • If you have a very old map … post E has been abandoned and replaced by P on the Short Yellow course; post Q has been moved away from fireplaces; R has been moved out of the undergrowth across the path to the bench.
