  • Course Status

  • Last checked June 2022. Everything OK.  A major map revision has just been undertaken.
  • 1/7/2022 – Post Q was broken and hard to find, and has been replaced with a new post ZZ in a new position a few metres away. Make sure you get a new map!
  • nb.  April 2022 – post J has been moved a few metres East to a better site in the middle of the three gullies, but the bridge below it is broken and best avoided.
  • It looks like rabbits are making a home under post V.
  • Orienteering map details

  • There are two orienteering maps, the main Tandle Hill map, and a partial blown-up map of the SE part – Tandle Hill East – to support young beginner exercises.
  • Tandle Hill – A4 landscape, Scale 1:5000. Last updated July 2022.
  • Tandle Hill East – A4 portrait, Scale 1:2500. Last updated July 2022.
  • Start/Finish
