  • Course Status

  • Last checked July 2022.  Everything OK, except post F is either missing or overgrown.
  • NB. from 1/9/2021, the hard-to-find ZZ has been moved to outside the adjacent thicket, the bramble-infested T has been moved to the knoll foot next to the wall, and the nasty XX has been moved to the cricket club gate (the old XX post will be removed in a few months time).  Get yourself a new map !
  • August 2020 – the map has been brought right up to date.
  • Orienteering map details

  • Full area map: A4 Landscape, Scale 1:6000. Last updated 2020.
  • Central area map: A4 Portrait, Scale 1:2500. Last updated 2020.
  • There has been some clearing 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.
