Course description:Exposed moorland rising to 325m (hence with excellent views over the surrounding areas) cut by two North/South deep valleys. Generally fast open grassland on the north-facing slopes and slow, rough open tussocky grass and indistinct marshes elsewhere. Many individually mapped single trees and bushes cover the whole area. Areas of bracken (not a hindrance at this time of year) in the open areas are mapped as "slow run undergrowth" and areas of significant gorse in the tussocky areas are mapped as "walk undergrowth".
Colour coded courses:White, Yellow, Orange, Light Green, Short Green, Green, Blue, Brown
