EOD entry fees: Seniors £12 (non-BOF £14). Juniors £4. SI card hire  £1. (non-SIAC)

Start times from 10.30 to 12.30. Your chosen start block is displayed on Fabian4
Courses: White, Yellow, Orange, Light Green, Short Green, Green, Blue and Brown.
Map: 1::7500 with 5m contours by Bruce Bryant with selective revisions in 2022. Maps printed on waterproof A4 paper

Terrain: A mix of woodland, sloping down to the NE with a 70m height difference. There are many tracks and smaller paths and localized areas of interesting contour detail. Although not large, many areas are quite runnable - see photo below - making it one of OD’s better technical areas and a nice place to go orienteering..
