- Last checked December 2017. Everything OK except XJ is now missing, and some fences around F need remapping. January 2018 update: XJ has been replaced, and the map around F updated.
- Previous notes … the undergrowth is again causing problems, with Posts L, Q, T and LT disappearing into the vegetation, and access to M, and to a lesser extent F, being hampered by the vegetation.
- (NB. May 2017 – we have just replaced the old post H which disappeared under new houses, with a new post R on all the courses that used H before.)
- Controls T, HL, LT, TT, VN may be overgrown in Summer.
