Lovely woods, great geocaches. As for the complaint about dog poo, maybe a few more bins and ask the horse riders to comply also. Met some nice people and dogs, all very friendly

Went for a nice walk in Battle Great Wood Sunday 1st June but the amount of dog poo left on the paths was unacceptable. Must have seen about ten piles throughout the walk and all fresh too. I know there is not much anyone can do to police this. however, Brede Woods has a nice sign at the entrance saying that there is no Dog Poo fairy to clear up after the dogs, so please clear it up yourself! May the FC can take a leaf out of Brede's book.
