GR 087 527
Steep, hilly very fast heavily contoured limestone with rock features. Excellent for testing and practising technical map reading skills. Mostly open grassland with scrub woodland areas. Take care crossing old, dilapidated fences and report any damage. . The area is exposed, so in adverse conditions (remember the time of year!) cags and whistles will be compulsory.
