Killerton Park (National Trust) Permanent Orienteering Course 
Please note that, as of July 2015, the permanent course has been refurbished by the Trust - with new posts, discs and pin punches, as required. Work by the Trust over the winter 2015/16, combined with the effects of gales, has necessitated changes to the maps and courses below. We hope you enjoy the orienteering!
