Killerton Park (National Trust) Permanent Orienteering Course 

The National Trust and Devon Orienteering Club are currently working on a programme to update the map, review the range of courses on offer and replace posts or plaques where appropriate, The first phase of this update will take place between March -July 2021. 

In the meantime please be aware that as at December 2020:

  • A significant number of the present red and white plaques are faded and cannot be read, due to sun bleaching. 
  • Controls 3, 5, 6,  9, 12, 20, 24 and 26 are in locations which are either very overgrown or the post may be missing.  

This is a National Trust property, and normal admission prices, times and conditions apply for access to the main part of the property. Please see the National Trust website for details.
