  • Course Status

  • Last checked January 2024. Everything OK. 
  • STOP PRESS – make sure you get a new map !!  (Feb 2023) The Start/Finish post has been moved a few metres across the path to a less exposed spot. Previously … Post F has been moved a few metres across to the path inside the wood (from the overgrown path along the river bank).  T is now a plaque on the bench close to its previous site, and Z is now a plaque on the bench opposite. The base map has also been updated in several places.
  • NB. post I was getting difficult to approach and subject to fly tipping. A new post I has been installed in a much better place, and the map updated, as of 27/6/2020.
