  • Course Status

  • 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 July 2019.  H now has a fence hiding it from the path junction, the fence near F has been removed. N, FI, V, H are overwhelmed by undergrowth, but MapRun will find them!
  • Feedback (Marcus, 24/9/16):  Did light green course – very challenging!   All posts present although there are 2 X posts.
  • 14/10/2016: we have re-sited post X (on the Light Green course only) to avoid a dodgy stream crossing and very wet ground – it is now 150m to the South on the North side of a gully. The old post will remain in place for a while for brave people with old maps.
  • Orienteering map details
