- Last checked October 2018. Everything present, although X is difficult to see under the bush.
- Also, it appears that someone with a can of grey paint has been targetting controls near the golf course.
Orienteering map details
- A4 Landscape, Scale 1:4000. Last updated 2017.
- 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.

- From M60 junction 20, take the A627M north signed to Rochdale. Bear left at the end of the motorway onto the A664 and continue to the traffic lights. Turn left onto the A58 signed to Bury. At the next lights bear right to continue on the A58 along Bolton Road. The park entrance is 700m on right. Note that a 1-way system in the park means that you will emerge from a different place to where you entered.
