  • Course Status

  • Last checked November 2020 – everything OK.  The new bridge at P is now open, and P is now a plaque on the path junction at the South end of it.
  • February 2017 – control 36 has been re-positioned on the SE side of the pond; control 93 has been re-positioned on a boulder about 30 metres North of the marsh it was in.
  • Orienteering map details

  • A4 Landscape, Scale 1:7500. Last updated November 2020 including the new bridge.
  • Start/Finish

  • The Start/Finish is a thicket end, centrally placed at the edge of the top level open areas. It is a 600m walk from the main car park, and a similar distance from the alternative.
