Permanent Courses in Derbyshire

These courses provide an opportunity for individuals and groups to orienteer at any time. They vary in technical difficulty as detailed below, some are more suitable for teaching children, others offer a challenge even to the experienced orienteer. In most cases map packs and bulk copies of the maps (with or without the controls marked) are available. For more information on any of the courses contact the Permanent Course Coodinator.
