Safety. Please be aware of barbed wire that might be
next to your chosen route. This is along stone walls. This is especially
important on the Short course. Be very careful.

Fair Play. Please do not cross any stone wall or
fence that is covered by a purple line on the map, even if it looks easy
to do. There is one point where a wall has fallen but there is one line
of barbed wire in front of it. It may be tempting to duck under but in
the interest of safety, fair play and our continued permission for use
of the area please do not.

Control descriptions. The X symbol is used in the
control descriptions for hides and distinct tree roots. It is clear from
the map which of these you are looking for. There are more fallen trees
than are mapped.
