Dull, overcast but dry, mild for February.

The purple dots on the map show the field that we crossed that in hindsight we should not have. The OS map shows a permissive path across it. At the bottom is a field gate with a sign saying 'Private, no path' but the guidebook we were following said that the sign only applied to the field gate and not the hand gate next to it that we used. However on the 'outside' of the hand gate at the top of the field there was also a sign saying 'Private No Path'. My new OS Map (less than a year old) and the guidebook are now obviously both out of date and the field can not be crossed anymore.
