Details

Description:Exposed moorland to 325m (with excellent views) cut by two North/South deep valleys. Generally fast open grassland on the north-facing slopes and rough tussocky grass and indistinct marshes elsewhere. Many individually mapped trees and bushes cover the whole area. Areas of bracken in the open areas (not a hindrance in May) are mapped as ‘slow run undergrowth’ and areas of significant gorse in the tussocky areas are mapped as ‘walk undergrowth’. Map fully updated Autumn 2020 by Trevor Crowe. Drawn to ISOM 2017-2. Scale 1:7,500 with 5m contours. A3 waterproof paper with courses overprinted. Control descriptions printed on the map and available loose at the Start.
