- Last checked January 2020. 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.
- 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.
