General - A small team of overseers checks on the condition of footpaths and major difficulties found are noted here.  Some paths are still difficult to follow because of crops, but this is improving.  We continue to clear overgrown paths and to re-establish paths across fields.  See "Update Notes on All Walks" for notes which apply to all walks.

The index table below summarises known difficulties and in mosr cases solutins, and provides a link to a "printer friendly" page giving details where necessary - more will be added if needed.  Note that some apply only to First Edition of the books only (2007 edition includes update), while others apply to both.
