This year the start will be Little Stretton. There is parking on the roadside near campsite......please park considerately. or at the pub (only by prior arrangement with the pub please !)
1st post at GR 434 918 – 10 paces south of this fence corner (Explorer 217)
At the 1st post (white with red top) there will be a grid reference and description for the next one and so on; one post will give you a choice of long or short eventually leading you to a sack containing goodies. Object being to find the best/most pleasant/scenic/longest/silliest (you get the idea) route around the hill.
You can do this solo, pairs or groups but please treat the Long Mynd with respect – it can bite back so take sensible kit for a few hours up there – hat, waterproof jacket, food, etc. Consider what happens if you twist an ankle and have to stop and limp off the hill – going to get cold very quickly and even if it’s sunny it could still be cold. If I’m teaching you to suck eggs…………….. good as we all need reminding !!
Course opens Sunday 21st December and will be collected in on Monday 5th January – Have fun, Happy Christmas. Clive.
