Location Details

Safety:  The area is very popular with visitors.

The long courses use a railway tunnel/bridge to get to the southern part, these must be used. There are some ponds and streams. There are a few bridges across deep streams, but beware some bridges have been removed. 

Score Course: Find as many as you can, with penalties for being late.  This course enables children to practice before going to the British Schools Score Orienteering Championships in October
