  • Course Status

  • Last checked July 2024. Everything OK, except the fence with the Start/Finish attached has fallen over, and G and X are deep in vegetation.  
  • F has been moved from its disappeared fence corner to the surviving fence corner a few metres NorthEast.
  • The Start/Finish plaque has been moved to a nearby post. X, D, G, P are affected by undergrowth.
  • nb. the rotted post J has been replaced a few metres away on the path junction rather than the ditch side.
  • L may be tricky to find, X may be hiding behind vegetation. Note that several controls are not posts, but small wooden plaques attached to fences or gates.
  • There are some very significant ditches which should only be crossed by marked bridges – vole habitat work is ongoing. Take care to be on the right side of them.
  • Orienteering map details

  • A4 Landscape, 1:4000. Last updated February 2023.
  • Start/Finish

  • The Start/Finish is on a fence corner, just down the track off Riverside Drive, where you park on the street.
