Beecroft is a beautiful mixed woodland not visited since 2017, and much changed! It has been significantly improved from an orienteering point of view after recent forestry work, clearing much undergrowth and storm damage throughout. The map, is completely new, resurveyed and redrawn in August 2023 by Andrew Kelly.

All courses finish in the northern, rarely used, section of Timble. The short courses (yellow, orange and very short green) will be solely in Timble using some intesting little paths and runnable areas. These courses will cross a narrow part of the stream at good stepping stones. It has not been possible to plan a white course, and short green should be accessible to confident light green competitors. The courses starting at the Far start in Beecroft will have a timed out road crossing.

These are final course lengths. For all other information, please see final details.
