Areas

This page is under development; not all areas have a linked page with a full description. We hope to use different map pins to convey more information. Further suggestions welcome by email / on the forum / facebook group.

This map will show HOC areas that have hosted events since 2011; it does not include areas that were created by generating a map from the Open Orienteering application (typically the night urban league or MapRuns).

Click on a map pin for a link to the Area details, including a list of all events hosted by that area up to 2021. These in turn have links to results etc where known. Alternatively scroll down to the table of areas which can be searched.

The “Get Directions” links on the map pins are generic and do not override instructions in event details. Much of the wording on the areas pages is taken from earlier work by David Williams and Dave Nevell.

The second column in this table is provided for future planners and organisers to see a quick overview of the level and nature of events held there in the past. It currently needs checking. This alone is not confirmation that it is still suitable. More information may be available from either the Mapper or the Landowner Liaison Officer.
