Welcome to the Local Orienteering Club's page which tells you about Permanent Orienteering Courses. These use control markers that remain in place permanently (e.g. on wooden posts), rather than the temporary controls used in events which are only in place while the event is taking place. This means you can use the courses even if there is no organised event on at the time. The normal public opening hours and parking charges still apply for the parks.
