We have included Green and Blue courses at Clowbridge on a new 1:15000 map, taking full advantage of a large and interesting moorland area.
Conditions in the woods are currently perfect – and there’s lots of snowdrops to enjoy – at Heaton Park.
Extreme sogginess everywhere – here’s a new lake at Reddish Vale.
There’s plenty of snow and mud to be found in our parks at the moment! Photo by postwatcher Paul.
We have decided that MapRun is the way forward for smartphone (and smartwatch) orienteering. So, to keep things simple, our few MapTiler and HippsomApp products have been withdrawn, and we will not be trying to maintain all the MOBO controls at Burrs.
This bench, on the path South of control TF, is dedicated to memorial plaques for oodles of dogs. It was very shiny in the low-flying winter sunshine.
Missing posts A and D replaced at Chorlton Water Park. Busy, but not completely heaving – a good job with quite a bit of car park being under water, and no ice-cream van. The eagle eyed amongst you may spot the new post A in the photo (next to the dog-poo bin and the person with the white top).
Snow on the ground, low flying clouds, wetness all around … a tad bracing !
The underwater path through Moses Gate Darcy Lever is being seriously upgraded – see photo. Maintenance joblets knocked off in 3 Bolton parks this week.
Somewhat belatedly, you might think, we have redesigned the Hough End courses to take advantage of the public car park next to the relatively new Leisure Centre. So, make sure to use the latest map, and the new car park! Picture is the new Start/Finish post. Other joblets this week … couple of posts repaired at Dukes Drive Monton and full set of QR plaques installed at Queens Park Bolton.
