The WW2 spigot mortar pit here, which is highlighted in Waverley BC's own Farnham Park interpretation, has been allowed to become very overgrown making it virtually invisible and a hazard to Park users including children.

No action has been taken and neither has the council been in touch.

I believe the Waverley countryside ranger is trying to get a grant to maintain the site.

At long last it appears that some work has been undertaken to start clearing the vegetation. It looks better than it did and it is now more obvious so is less of a trip hazard to park users.

This photograph shows clearance soon after it had started.
The site has now been further cleared but logs have been positioned to prevent people tripping over the lip of the ammunition lockers.
It is hoped that some interpretation will be provided soon and some protective barrier erected.
State changed to: Fixed
