*COURSE CHANGE*

If you previously read this preview then the course has now changed.

After the brook crossing the course now continues in a straight line to a red marker on the edge of the wood at the end of the field after the brook.

The course then turns right around the wood and returns in a northerly direction.

As the course has changed I don't have photos of the last few efforts but the course goes back across the stream and heads north to the finish at w3w masking.leaflet.expiring.
