There are 2 beginners courses, 2 trickier ones and one course which challenges you to find all of the posts. The course distances on the maps are measured as straight lines between the checkpoints - expect to cover approximately half as far again as you skirt obstacles.

The start is at the base of the steps by the bridge near The Navigation Inn (WV13 3AW) at SO958997

Fibbersley Nature Reserve is a fascinating example of an area dominated by heavy industry during the Industrial Revolution and now transformed into a network of pools and a home for a wide variety of wildlife.  It offers some interesting orienteering with a complex network of paths and contours.
