  • Course Status

  • Last checked June 2022. Everything OK, except undergrowth is rampant.
  • All the plaques have been replaced with new ones with a generic QR code rather than using the MOBO app.  Also, controls 15, 24, Y have been moved 20m or so to new features; controls 22 and 23 have been removed due to increased traffic along the cobbled road. Invest in a new map !!
  • The cafe and pub are now open more frequently and the East Lancs Railway stops at the Burrs Halt.
  • NB.  Country Park controls are all identified by letters and have symbols/shapes as answers.  Activity Centre controls are all identified by numbers and have letters as answers.   As the courses overlap, it is possible to be confused, sorry !
