Hi

Walked Culter on Sunday and just wanted to let other walkers know that at the start of stage 5 (walk highlands) where the boggy ground begins the first of a series of wooden plank crossings that must once have been there to walk across deep sections are missing . We found this out by accident. Walking into waist deep marsh. The remaining boggy ground still has the regular plank crossings alongside the fence !
