The course is located on open, undulating parkland surrounding a valley, the lowest point of which is near course point ‘F’. Part of the course goes along steeply inclined paths, leading up to course point ‘H’.  The course from the start to point ‘D’ is surprisingly flat and thus conducive to fast running!


The viewing area for spectators is excellent, positioned on the ridge overlooking the whole course. The ‘forest path’ can be viewed from this vantage point through the trees.


The car parking area, to the south-east of the start,  is large and flat immediately from the road access although it is advised to swing left (or right) from the entrance rather than straight up the slope.


2018 course inspection carried out on Thursday 28th December 2017.


The route of the course although identical to that used in previous years has some subtle differences. Fences have been taken down meaning the area is far more of a ‘blank canvas’.


Given the current warm yet wet weather the course and surrounding area is very green with lush grass. The flat areas’ grass is quite short whilst the slopes have longer grass. Under the grass the soil is relatively dry – remember the whole area drains exceptionally quickly. North facing shaded slopes, on the day of inspection after a frost, were noticeably firmer under foot.


Where previous months’ horse trials were located there is less grass and the ground is slightly muddy.


Moles are prevalent and migrate into and from many areas; there are old and new mole hills randomly dotted about the course!


The park is a designated dog walking area but this year seemingly very little ‘left overs’!


Spectators are advised to keep clear of the race routes whilst selecting a viewing position.
