- New! You can now record your run using the MapRun App on your Smartphone. Score points and share your results too. See the Smartphones page for details.
- Last checked February 2019. Everything OK … except post E has been uprooted and is lying nearby. The area on the South West of the motorway footbridge can get quite muddy after rain but the paths on the lake side are generally drier.
- NB. A new footpath has been created along the entrance road from post E through to the main centre car park which won`t be on the map yet. Post C has been moved to just inside the field to make it more accessible.
