  • Course Status

  • Last checked June 2020 – everything OK.
  • Posts Q and I, having disappeared under the new Tameside Council car park have been re-sited. Post B had disappeared and a new one installed 30m or so away from brambles.
  • The old post B had a memorial plaque affixed:  JASON Died 23rd March 1997 Aged 9 Years R.I.P.  The plaque has disappeared with the old post, but this note is a replacement of sorts – we suspect Jason may have been a pet.
  • Orienteering map details

  • A4 Portrait, Scale 1:5000. Completely revised 2019 updated 2020.
  • Start/Finish

  • Courses start at the edge of the wood near the SouthEast corner of the Southern lake, and finish at the SouthWest corner, by the steps from the car park. The Start is about 100m from the car park.
