Route update

Direction 7: After heavy rain, access to the tunnel in direction 7 becomes flooded. Instead, when reaching a final R turn towards Seghill spoil heap, turn L.  Go straight ahead to a road.  Continue along the road which swings R and keep going straight ahead until reaching Fisher Lane and direction 8.
