Simon Peck Summer Series 1: Orwell Country Park

The first event in our Simon Peck Summer Series will be set in Bridge Wood, which is the most southerly part of Orwell Country Park. It’s a lovely section of mixed woodland which leads down to the estuary and there’ll be a choice of three courses of differing lengths & levels of difficulty, suitable for everyone from experienced orienteers to complete beginners - including those who've begun to develop their skills at our Ipswich-O events. As usual, there'll be a Help Point where our volunteers will offer advice - & will happily discuss your route choices after you've finished.
