Available Maps

Crickley Hill Country Park is up on the Cotswold escarpment, with great views over Cheltenham and Gloucester.  As well as an iron age hill fort, it has nice woodlands and open grassland and a good network of paths.

From here, you can download both the map and the details sheet. They tell you everything you need to know - the map shows where all the control posts are, while the details sheet lists several courses (and small loops) of various difficulties.

NOTE: If the downloaded map is distorted or poor resolution, email the local club's Permanent Course uploader to be sent the original PDF: caroline.craig4@gmail.com
