Mapped depressions and pits can vary greatly in size. Where the mapped depressions and pits are large there are often smaller unmapped depressions and pits nearby.

Terrain Description

Generally good running. Typical walled limestone terrain, with many rock and stone features.

There are also very many dry stone walls in the area which need to be crossed only at designated crossing points. These crossing points MUST be used, and include specially constructed stiles, farm gates which can be climbed, open gateways or gates, and stiles on public rights of way. Any damage to walls or gates is to be reported to the organiser to allow repairs. No stiles or gates need to be climbed on the young junior or shortest senior courses.

A number of areas are marked on the map as Out of Bounds, including all areas of limestone pavement and an SSSI.

Dog restrictions

Sorry no dogs allowed even in assembly area.
