Bullet point 5; The 'pitches' referred to as being n the left may no longer exist. Andrew Hunt suggests that the clearest instruction now is 'Where the hedgerow turns sharp left, continue straight on across the grass keeping just to the left of the two groups of bushes'

Bullet points 6 and 7; The 'pencil-thin poplar' referred to is no longer visible. The 'small dead end of tarmac', however, still clearly indicates the route. The 'short tarmac stub' of path is also now apparently largely hidden by grass. Andrew suggests; 'You merge with a tarmac path coming in from your right from the other side of the bushes. There is a patch of weedy tarmac partly overgrown with grass to the right of the path at the point where it curves round to the left. At this point, cross the path and walk towards the right hand corner of the hedge ahead that surrounds the bowling green. Walk between the corner of the hedge and a large oak tree on your right into a small field.'   

Bullet point 11; The Boat club car park mentioned here has now become a Barratts yard, used to store building materials.
