Our apologies for recent service unavailabilities. We have had some drama transferring to a new hosting service, and hopefully now all will be stable again.
Possibly the best smartphone orienteering app to date – MapRun. Check out the smartphones page – we have half-a-dozen of our most popular parks set up for it – Chorlton Water Park, Dove Stone, Heaton Park, Lyme Park, Sale Water Park, Wythenshawe Park.
Three posts replaced at Worsley Woods, and one thought to be missing re-discovered. Photo is post TN.
Also slipped in a full check of Dukes Drive.
All posts checked and painted.
Note that there’s a rogue post V where the top path crosses the unusual row-of-slabs wall near post T (see picture). This is not the V you are looking for – the real one is 150m SW of this impostor. No idea how this has come about!
Another beautiful Autumn day.
Post N replaced at Brabyns Park (photo). Everything painted and plaque’d at Bruntwood Park. Changes to path network mapped at Mirrlees Fields.
All in a day’s work … Post TT replaced at Moses Gate Cromptons Lodges (see photo), and minor map update to help find it.
Significant map update at Moses Gate Darcy Lever to make it easier to find posts S and K.
Painted everything but discovered 3 missing posts at Worsley Woods.
Discovered missing post N at Brabyns.
Moved the letter Q nearer to its circle at Kersal Dale.
A couple of posts replaced at Queens Park – W moved out of the deep undergrowth. Post U replaced at Leverhulme. Couple of posts checked at Darcy Lever.
Post TT confirmed missing at Crompton’s Lodges. Picture is loads of birds at Crompton’s Lodges.
Longford Park is now set up for mobile phone orienteering using the HippsommApp.
Picture is my phone’s record of this afternoon’s pootle round all the controls, adding plaques, painting and gardening at the same time.
Gorse Hall – postwatcher Alison and friend hard at work – post F replaced, and post Z moved to a better site.
Dove Stone – reports coming in that the dam and car park work is finished so all is back to normal
Wythenshawe Hall – belated news that the Gardens have been re-opened and so that is back to normal too.
Post TI replaced. Feature picture is an interesting new sculpture near the car park. And here’s Burrs custodian John McIntosh.
