Permanent Orienteering Course
The Permanent Orienteering Course at Haldon Forest Park is now open!
We are delighted that, with the support of Forestry England, the volunteer efforts of Devon Orienteering club members together with funding from the Rural Development Programme England, the permanent course at Haldon has been remapped, new posts have been installed, new courses planned and maps printed.
For details about the range of courses, and how maps may be obtained, see: Haldon Permanent Orienteering Course
