Survey notes from November 2020:

  • Orienteering posts 3, 8 and 13 are missing
  • The map has changed significantly around missing orienteering post 3 with the construction of a grotto.
  • Orienteering post 9 is present, but the map has changed. Path to SE now meets main track to W of control, so no longer at a path junction.
