Blaise Castle 2601

A 650 acre Grade II* registered parkland including children’s play area, museum and castle.

At Blaise Castle, each control marker is a concrete post with a control number and letter on it. The Control Card on the reverse of the map shows the 18 control numbers that currently exist and the precise locations on the ground of the corresponding control markers. The letters are your evidence that you have successfully found the control markers so enter each one into the app against its corresponding control number.

Please do not enter areas marked as “private land” or “out of bounds” on the map and be careful not to wander outside the area covered by the map. You should also note that you take part in this orienteering experience at your own risk, so please be aware of your surroundings at all time.
