  • Course Status

  • Last checked April 2017. Everything OK.
  • Note that a July 2016 working party relocated X to a small knoll from a nearby thicket – use the latest map and check your descriptions carefully. P was relocated in mid December, again if using an old map be careful, the new position is 150m South of the old P.
  • The area South of the river suffers from dense undergrowth in Summer, making it harder to locate control posts, especially L, P, U and X.
  • Orienteering map details

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

  • The Start/Finish is at the gate between the car park and the park itself.
