  • New! You can now record your run using the MapRun App on your Smartphone. Score points and share your results too. See the Smartphones page for details.
  • Last checked April 2019. Everything OK … except control F is missing (though the red plaque is still there), T is already in brambles.
  • The MapRun App works really well in this Park. Give it a go!
  • The area South of the river suffers from dense undergrowth in Summer, making it harder to locate control posts, especially L, M, P, T, U and X.
  • Orienteering map details

  • A4 Portrait, Scale 1:6000. Last updated December 2016.
