Directions / Parking

The small car park for RSPB Tudeley Woods Nature Reserve on Half Moon Lane (also known as Dislingbury Lane), 500m E of the A21.

NOTE! There are extensive roadworks on the A21 nearby & it’s easy to miss the turning.
Travelling South on the A21 watch out for the yellow ‘Site Office’ sign and entrance – the
turning is about 150m further on, unsigned.
Travelling North on the A21 you cannot turn right, so you have to loop back at the next
junction (A26 & A2014). Nearest railway station High Brooms (4km).

Course Information

60 minute score suitable for all abilities. Visit as many controls as you can. 20 Controls, 90-99 and 100-109. 90s first or 100s first, changeover when/where you like. 1 point per control, with a penalty of 1 point per minute or part minute beyond 60 mins. 

Explanation of Score courses

You don't have to visit all the controls! There is usually a time limit, instead of a set course. Points are scored for visiting controls, and deducted for finishing over the time limit. You decide which controls to visit, and in which sequence. Sometimes controls have different points values. You will need to carry a watch or phone, so you know how long you have been out.
