Just some further information for Newbridge House Demesne, next Sunday,  24th September. As you approach the park from the M1, along the R126, there will be a sign to the left  a few hundred metres short of the main park entrance. This road is Cobbe's Lane. And a secondary park entrance, along this road will be available for orienteering traffic. This will lead to an area for parking, registration,  start and finish. 

Please also note that ditches are very full with water and should not be crossed except at mapped  bridges or crossing points.

Note also, that entries close at 23.00hrs Friday, 22nd September.
