Dog rules:Dogs are allowed, but please keep them under control and clean up after them. This is a municipal park so there will be other members of the public and in some cases, they will have dogs with them so we need to be respectful of their use of the park but also to be aware that, sadly, not all dog owners are as thoughtful as we would wish them to be.


Description:The map was originally drawn Summer 2020 by Chris Johnson from a new Lidar plot and has been updated by him to April 2021. The scale (for all courses) is 1:10,000 with 5m contours overprinted, and the map is A3 size and waterproof. There are areas of wildflowers that we have been asked to avoid and these will be marked Out-of-Bounds in purple on the map. They affect Blue and Green courses. There is no room for a full legend on the map so please ensure you are already familiar with the ISOM 2017 Orienteering Map Symbols before the event: https://www.maprunner.co.uk/resources/Maprunner-map-symbols-2017.pdf

Course description:The Estate is a mix of open, parkland, steep in places and also some small wooded areas with some steep slopes which can be muddy. The main paths are mapped but small and indistinct paths are not. All paths could be muddy/slippery particularly if wet, so O-shoes are very much recommended and fully body cover is required. The Green and Blue courses also use a small part of the adjoining Cheswick Village Estate.
Colour coded courses:Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue
