Courses

Course description:Always a popular venue for Orienteering, Chailey Common is a SSSI / national nature reserve, the southern part of which (Memorial Common, Pound Common & Romany Ridge) is generally low lying and tends to be wet / muddy in the winter months. Much of the area is open heathland with areas of gorse and birchwoods. The area has an abundance of ground features and many paths / tracks, which makes for fairly fast but sometimes tricky navigation. Copy of map here: https://www.so.routegadget.co.uk/rg2/#338
