  • Course Status

  • Last checked May 2021. Everything OK, except … post A is missing, and some of the posts have very little paint left on them and are hard to read.
  • Rhododendron clearing has significantly reduced the size of some of the mapped thickets.
  • Posts H, M, U may be hard to find in summer undergrowth.
  • Orienteering map details

  • A4 Landscape, Scale 1:4000.  Last updated 2017.
  • Start/Finish

  • The Start/Finish is about 200m from the car park, across the field, by a shelter. Though for orienteering it may be better to use the plentiful road-side parking near the Start/Finish.
