Venue:East Harptree Woods
Nearest town:Wells
Postcode:BS40 6DE
Grid reference:ST548534
Parking information:As suspected would be the case – the recent cold wet spell has played havoc with our parking options, so there will potentially be very little parking space. If at all possible please make your own arrangements to share transport, you may find this preferable to the alternative given below! Depending on the turnout we may have to invoke the option of asking drivers of cars with occupancy of 1 or 2 only to make the short drive to the Stock Hill Car Park, combine in to a single vehicle and return. We appreciate this is not a simple and convenient option, but if you are keen to run here, this is a way of achieving that, on this occasion. Additionally, to ease any parking management issues, please only approach the assembly from the South West, i.e the road junction on the B3134 by the Castle of Comfort Public House. Please be reminded that we do not have permission to use the Forestry Commission Car Park at East Harptree Woods. The parking will be limited to the road side verges, to the South of the woods GR554537.
Dog rules:Subject to potential of parking on farmers track, and course options including running along the field boundaries at the edge of the woods, dogs will not be permitted.


Description:A compact area with a surprising array of terrain types for such a small space. The area is deceptively physical, due in part to the thinning operations of Winter 2017. NB many of the ‘rides’ mapped in the South of the map are less runnable than the intervening terrain. The Northern slope visited by the green course is mature beech woodland with rocky outcrops. In the centre of the map there is an area associated with the former tin mining and smelting activity around Smitham’s Chimney. The Southern area is mostly mature coniferous plantation.
Physical difficulty of terrain:Medium
