  • Course Status

  • Last checked July 2020.  Everything OK – note that control U has been re-instated across the path from its old position.
  • Beware the Giant Hogweed, which can give a long-lasting blistering rash, though it looks like it may have been treated with something.
  • Major infestation of rose-bay willow herb and Himalayan balsam may make some controls difficult to find in late summer – in particular A is very hard to get to.
  • If you have a very old map … post E has been abandoned and replaced by P on the Short Yellow course; post Q has been moved away from fireplaces; R has been moved out of the undergrowth across the path to the bench.
  • Orienteering map details

  • A4 Landscape, Scale 1:5000. Last updated July 2020.
  • Start/Finish

  • The Start/Finish post is on the South side of the path:
