- Last checked August 2020 – everything OK, except a new bridge is being built on top of where post P was. It will be re-positioned when the bridgeworks are complete.
- February 2017 – control 36 has been re-positioned on the SE side of the pond; control 93 has been re-positioned on a boulder about 30 metres North of the marsh it was in.
Orienteering map details
- A4 Landscape, Scale 1:7500. Last updated 2020 – the bridge and the road to it, and the project yard are now on the map, but all the associated Heras fencing isn’t.
- The Start/Finish is a thicket end, centrally placed at the edge of the top level open areas. It is a 600m walk from the main car park, and a similar distance from the alternative.
