July 2020 Report: A member of Devon Orienteering Club checked the course and found that:

  • Control 44: the bench has moved about 50 metres south of its mapped position.
  • Control 51: the control has either gone or is totally may need a winter check.
  • Controls 47 and 45: a bit overgrown, but visible when looking in the right place.
