Orienteering @Spud Wood

Orienteering@Spud Wood

To celebrate the first 21 years of Spud Wood we have built a permanent orienteering course that will take you around and about in Spud Wood.

Orienteering is an exciting and challenging outdoor sport that exercises mind and body. The aim is to navigate between control points marked on an orienteering map. As a recreational activity, it doesn’t matter how young, old or fit you are, as you can run or walk making progress at your own pace on the courses planned to suit you.

A collaboration between Friends of Spud Wood (FoSW), Lymm Round Table and 3rd Lymm Scout Group with the support of The Woodland Trust and Bridgewater Canal Company has seen the creation of a new permanent Orienteering course at Spud Wood.
