MOVING IN NATURE
  • Use marked routes and paths.

BUNKERS AND OTHER FORTIFICATIONS
  • The bunkers are not lit and may be in a poor condition.
  • There may be deep wells, sharp projections, iron pegs and drops in the bunkers.
  • In cave-like bunkers, rock material may easily come loose or fall. Always move very carefully when near bunkers.  
  • The bunkers and other fortifications are comparable with sites protected under the Antiquities Act – they must not be altered in any way.
