Course description:Map Details:- 1:7500 newly mapped by Chris Hooker in the summer and autumn of 2017 to ISOM 2017. Note that many small seasonal paths are not on the map and that some veg boundaries indicate areas of dead bracken. Terrain Description: Mixture of open managed heathland and small pockets of woodland. There is an abundance of depressions and gullies as well as a good path network. This area was last used in 1997 and has changed considerably since then. Course Information Blue 5.6km, Green 3.6km, Orange 2.5km, Yellow 1.5km Yellow course competitors should note that line features other than paths will be used (i.e. a gully and a veg boundary) and that some controls will be just off the line feature (but visible). The start is about 300m from the car park and involves a short walk alongside the A272 on a pavement. Parents are requested to accompany their children to and from the start and finish please.
