- Last checked July 2023. Everything OK. However, stretches of new fence are intended to curtail access off the paths. These have been added to the map – but it is still possible to do loops round each of the two halves, without climbing any fence. See the News post for a photo – these are hip-height and not barbed so are indicative rather than enforcing. Rumours suggest the area is for sale, and also that planning permissions have been refused, so clearly the future of this area is uncertain ! Check out the Mirrlees Fields web site.
- nb. the paths through the grass seem to be ever-changing, and mapped “small trees” are much bigger now.
- Course installed September 2017.
