Terrain and map details

Managed coniferous forest. Bracken and nettles have proved to be particularly keen this year. Courses have been planned to avoid the most unpleasant areas even if this has had a small impact on the technical difficulty. Full leg cover is mandatory. All courses from Orange and above visit the most contoured section of the woods, this includes Short Green.

Portable toilets will be provided close to parking and registration. Public toilets available at car park on A1065 north of the Barton Mills roundabout (TL728744)
