The new overflow from the boating lake at Heaton Park is now on the map. Also, there’s been a significant resurvey of Kersal Moor.
Conditions in the woods are currently perfect – and there’s lots of snowdrops to enjoy – at Heaton Park.
We have decided that MapRun is the way forward for smartphone (and smartwatch) orienteering. So, to keep things simple, our few MapTiler and HippsomApp products have been withdrawn, and we will not be trying to maintain all the MOBO controls at Burrs.
To go along with the major map revision, we went and sorted a few things out so the course is now in great shape.
Missing post H is now a plaque on the fence. Buried in vegetation posts N, FI and V have all got new homes a few metres away.
Post M was rescued from a contractors compound and for the moment is attached to the nearby fence. All posts are freshly painted and have a hi-vis plaque attached.
Photo is Peter pretending that we put post V back in nice and straight.
We have a brand new map of Heaton Park – in a few weeks a British Schools Championship will be using it. Spent a long afternoon sorting out how the Permanent Course posts have been affected – just a few reworded descriptions. Photo is a family of swans out on manoeuvres on the northmost lake.
Possibly the best smartphone orienteering app to date – MapRun. Check out the smartphones page – we have half-a-dozen of our most popular parks set up for it – Chorlton Water Park, Dove Stone, Heaton Park, Lyme Park, Sale Water Park, Wythenshawe Park.
