Ghastly area - lots of mud and bramble....the only bit which was nice was actual Cothelstone Hill itself, and the course only had three controls up there. The event wasn't helped by controls 1 and 5 being a country mile from where they should have been - to the extent that I only found number five, which was on a wall in some open land, by fluke when I stumbled across it on my way out to carry on having concluded the control wasn't there. The control was clearly in an area of woodland, with no wall in sight!!! :o
And no one knows where number one was!!....Again, I found it by fluke on my way out to carry on.....it was meant to be on a depression, but was clearly on a knoll, and was much too close to number 2!! :o
Wandered into number 15 by fluke. No one knows wtf the map was on about there!
