13/8/2018 Diversion along the route at The Lynches Wood​ - estimated timeframe 3-4 weeks

There is forestry work being undertaken at The Lynches Wood so there is a diversion on this route, and you will need to walk along the edge of the field/wood between points 5 and 6 on the map rather than through the wood while these works take place (indicated below with the purple arrow).  You will still be able to enter the woods on the public footpath if you wish, it is just that the works will prevent you from completing the loop so you will have to return back to continue along the trail.
