Orienteering Kit

Our Orienteering Kit has a contour map and technical compasses to enable your group to test their navigation skills. Orienteering is the art of navigation around a set course visiting every control in order. Each participant should record the alphabetical code on their control card to prove that they have completed the course.

The kit has 4 Group wallets that can be used by up to 8 participants sharing maps and compasses. 16 additional ‘control cards’ are provided so that more people can use the kit throughout the day if required. There are 3 suggested courses: Short 1.0km Easy / Medium, 2.3km Medium / Long, 2.8km Harder.

The ticket you will get when you book will provide all of the pre-visit information you will need and risk assessment guidance notes. You can access the site to risk assess your visit without charge by showing your ticket at any time between booking and the day of your visit. We require formal groups to have Public Liability Insurance with a minimum indemnity limit of £5,000,000 and to complete a Risk Assessment for their group. 

Please ensure you have booked access for your group along side this kit. We will have to refuse your group access if we are fully booked and will not be able to refund the price of the kit on the day under these circumstances. The cost to hire this kit is £50 with a refundable cash deposit of £50 to pay on arrival which will be returned which will be refunded once the kit is returned.

This kit is available to hire during term time only, based on our local schools as the site can be very busy during school holidays. We may be able to make the kit available for groups on Saturdays during term time, please call 01704 874949 if you would like to explore this with us.

Please note: You will need to pay a deposit by cash or card when you collect your kit to cover any losses.
