  • Course Status

  • Last checked May 2024. Everything OK.
  • NB.  New  young trees are being planted around the lake and formal part of the park, these do not appear on the map yet. Pruning and topping of established trees continues.
  • nb. the path from U to S is very steep and may be slippy. 
  • nb. the missing post A has been replaced with a plaque on the back of the nearby bench, and the map updated accordingly.
  • 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 December 2023.
  • 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.
