Orienteering - test your navigation skills around the woods

Why not try your hand at orienteering, a map reading challenge for all levels.

The aim for everyone is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map. If you are a little more competitive the challenge is to complete the course in the quickest time.

There is a permanent course at Wendover Woods with 20 checkpoints to find.
