- Last checked May 2020 – everything OK.
- NB: The small footpath shown from 2 to 3 sometimes is more of a sheep trod than a significant path, but you can easily get between the two controls.
- NB: Around the lake, there are several posts with orienteering symbols on, which look like remnants of a disused Trail-O course, and should not be confused with the real ones.
Orienteering map details
- A4 Landscape, Scale 1:10000. Last updated September 2020.
- NB. This map only shows the area used by the beginner courses. There is also an A3 map of the full area, with longer and more difficult courses, which is displayed on a board (see photo below) and can be obtained from United Utilities at Lever Park.
- The Start/Finish is at a track junction 100m up the road climbing South from the car park under the reservoir.
