  • Course Status

  • Last checked April 2019.  Everything OK.
  • II is now IL and has moved to a nearby bend. V has moved to a nearby tree. K has moved to a different side of the thicket. The base map has been updated in a few areas.
  • G, J and E may be hard to find in seasonal undergrowth.
  • Orienteering map details

  • Full area map: A4 Landscape, Scale 1:6000. Last updated 2019.
  • Central area map: A4 Portrait, Scale 1:2500. Last updated 2019.
  • There has been some large scale felling of undergrowth and so some of the green slow runs are now much more accessible.
  • Start/Finish

  • The Start/Finish is about 250m from the car park, at a corner of the play area. This is relatively centrally located, to best support the Stars and Loops exercises available on the Central Area map.
