Directions / Parking

At Shrewsbury Park car park, off Plum Lane SE18, ///mild.cheat.liner. Parking is on hard standing, plentiful and free but the entrance to the car park is narrow and an awkward turn. If too difficult then there are plenty of spaces in Plum Lane to the N of the car park entrance.


Start and Finish for all courses are in Shrewsbury Park. The junior course is entirely within the park with no roads to cross. The senior courses visit Plumstead Common and other green spaces.

Control descriptions are printed are on each map. On the Long Course map the symbol O is a postbox but other symbols are standard. Other maps use text descriptions.

The junior course may be nearer orange than yellow standard. There are opportunities to take straight line routes on most legs and these could be used for practice on taking bearings.
