King's Wood is a pretty forested area in High Wycombe. The orienteering map of the area was beautifully redrawn by Jegor Kostylev, one of the country's highest-ranked orienteers, in the summer of 2016. It is at a scale of 1:5000 and needs to be printed on A3 paper (or two sheets of A4). The accompanying control descriptions suggest various courses using the permanent controls on the map. There are courses starting from car parks at either Cock Lane, near the council offices (Grid ref SU898937) or at the bottom of Kingswood Rd (Grid ref SU891941)
Use the MapRunF app on your smartphone to register controls using GPS satellites.
The information on MapRunF is here on Thames Valley ORienteering Club's website.
The courses may be found in the MapRunF app under Select Events > UK > TVOC > Kings Wood (High Wycombe).
An Orange course and a Green course are available on MapRunF.
