Kersal Dale Permanent Orienteering course renovation

Kersals working party

Both Kersal courses are now in great shape. Kersal Moor – a bit of new mapping and some clearance of inconvenient vegetation. Kersal Dale – a new post W, a new plaque B, quite a bit of painting and vegetation clearance. Both parks have some interesting local history.

Brookdale Park Permanent Orienteering Course post repairs

Boggart Hole and Brookdale Park working party

The orienteering course at Brookdale Park has been fully restored, and the Short Orange course slightly improved. The picture shows a post being repainted. Controls A,D,O and S/F are now plaques attached to RunEngland posts.

The course at Boggart Hole Clough has also been restored. Due to a bridge becoming dangerous Yellow and Light Green courses have been re-routed and control N moved across the lake; also posts V and Q have been moved to more accessible sites.

New post on Leverhulme Permanent Orienteering course

Leverhulme Park working party

We’ve just moved Leverhulme Park controls M,E,P,W and N to better sites – either out of undergrowth, or to be more easily found.

All issues in Bolton parks have now been sorted out this summer.

Bolton Working Party

 All 5 Bolton Parks’ POCs were tidied up last week … missing posts replaced, some posts moved out of undergrowth.
Photo shows the team having just moved post B at Moses Gate Darcy Lever.




Heaton Park

I’ve just completed checking Heaton Park. All the posts are present and correct but you’ll have a job getting to control Z until the wee festival that’s going on finishes at the end of June because it’s behind the crowd control fencing.

On the other hand the Park is as pretty as a picture just now.
