  • Course Status

  • Last checked April 2024. Everything OK.
  • NB. there is a new adventure playground on the left of the main track from the ranger office to Stormy Point, not yet mapped – and possibly very slippy. 
  • It will be interesting to see if the animals that have been nibbling the plaques have another go at the replacements – if you have any ideas what the animals are, let us know – theories include muntjac deer, squirrels and rats, but this is the only park it happens in, and why only a few plaques?
  • Checker comments:  Alderley Edge offers a great path network and some forays into the forest to find the posts.
  • NB. controls in this park are almost all on substantial square posts with a plaque mounted on the flat top – this may make it tricky for very small people to see.
  • Orienteering map details

  • A4 Landscape, Scale 1:5000. Last updated July 2023.
  • Start/Finish

  • The Start/Finish is a fence corner about 100m from the North end of the car park.
