  • Course Status

  • Last checked April 2022.   Everything OK – C has been replaced at the path junction close to its old spot which is now behind a high fence.
  • nb.  Swathes of very small new trees have been planted on the hill, and are now on the map.
  • nb. Changes in park maintenance mean that even more of the open grass (bright yellow) has become much longer rough open grass.
  • Orienteering map details

  • A4 Landscape, Scale 1:4000. Last updated April 2022.
  • Start/Finish

  • The Start/Finish is a plaque on a fence corner, pretty much in the centre of the park (though you may have to look behind parked vehicles). The main car park (the red marker above) is about 300m away, at the South entrance of the park – the less busy “main attractions” car park (the orange marker) may be a bit closer.
