There has been a late change to the route through the Sweet Lamb Bowl just after the start of stage 3. It is not possible within the available time frame to produce new notes for this small section (a couple of hundred yards). It will be a matter of studying the map and then following the arrows through the bowl. It is in any case all pretty well in line of sight. The notes can then be picked up at the water splash exiting the bowl. Please find layout attached.
Apologies for this, but the reason for this change is beyond the control of both the organisers and ourselves.

It would appear that you are now going over the grid at junction/post 12 in stage 4 and not through the posts as stated in the notes. This grid is ‘on the line’ and should present no problem.
Status Update Week Commencing Monday 9th February.

Remember though. The Google Earth files are contained in a zip file. If you are using a computer, they will be downloaded to your downloads folder and can then be opened with Google Earth. For mobile/iPhone/iPad users – you will be asked to “open in” an app like iFiles or Evernote etc. You must do this and then unzip the files. After this the files can be opened in Google Earth. It seems a long way around but it is worth it. It is assumed that you have installed both a file viewer & Google Earth beforehand. If not they are all available via the App Store and the Android Play Store.
