Unfortunately although this area is on the whole suitable for those with limited mobility it is almost devoid of complex contours.I have therefore had to devise controls from an unpromising base.
near the circle,as one decends,the thicket goes out of view giving
The reason for the length of the Elite course was to model the forthcoming
World Trail O Championships, which are to be held in Norway later this year.
Control 1 From the start one should have an elevated view of the controls
a Zero answer.
Control 2 C, D & E are all in the re-entrant, but only" D" is on the same level
as the north end of the linear marsh SW of 3 low trees.
Control 3 "B" centre of depression not deepest part.
Control 4 Half way between trees. Measurement to foot of trees gives "B",
however measurement from edge of green circle to green dot
Control 5 With no lateral lines of sight across re-entrant one has to use
distance estimation,using track to small tree as an aid.18Mts.
Flags were placed at 20,30 & 40 Mts down centre of Re-entrant
from the small tree. " A" on Standard & "B" on Elite.
Control 6 Zero , flag positioned at deepest part of depression, 1.5 Mts
from centre of depression.
Control 9 "D" Just a case of identifying which trees the flag was placed
Control 10 "B" Lines of sight as shown on solution sheet eliminated A & D.
Control 11 "B" is on a direct line between Commemorative boulder & small
knoll intersected by sight line from tree at junction to left side
of thicket. There was no restriction to you traversing the site
before returning to DP to make final decision.
Control 12 Zero, control centred mid point of earth wall. Vegetation
was cleared from West end & a flag placed on East end.
Flag "A" was 1.1mts east of centre on a 9Mt earth wall.
Control 14 "C" is half way between centre of track & tree North of path.
Control 15 Whilst travelling between 10 & 11 one may have noticed a gap
in the trees to South of track.Line of sight from tree at track
junction to East post in distance South of control goes
through "C" & similarly from same tree to small knoll West
side of mature coppice goes through "D"
( Sorry no ship wrecks on The Chase!!!)
All one had to do now was remember this whilst visiting 11 to
14 !!!! centre of re-entrant was confirmed from small tree to
leaning tree East of control ( not easily spotted now trees are
Control 16 Similar features give Zero .
Control 17 "C" is on direct line of fence to North of clearing.
Control 18 "A" Line of sight from vegetation NW to far tree.
Control 20 Zero , North side of coppice not visible from DP.
Control 21 "A" For those whose concentration was now flagging you
may have missed the small knoll before the descent,
from here flag A was in direct line to fence bend.
See solution map for fixation of other flags.
One could also notice that all flags were on West side of drain.
