Current engineering work on the flood relief channel means that not all of the previous Permanent Orienteering Course controls are accessible or in situ.  Parts of the area are temporarily fenced off and therefore out of bounds, as shown on the revised base map. (This has been updated in November 2016, following removal of some of the fencing.)  In addition, at the present time, it is not appropriate to ask Exeter City Council to install new posts. Therefore, temporary courses, together with the base map and the all controls map, have been produced by Devon OC and can be downloaded. We feel this arrangement – which will last until at least 2018- makes reasonable use of what remains and is available.
