In recent years urban orienteering has become very popular, and the narrow intricate streets of Old Peel make for some interesting orienteering. The area is mapped at 1;5000. We have produced two “Heritage orienteering maps” suitable for tourists and (accompanied) children as well as for orienteering proper.
Instead of searching for orienteering markers on the ground, the controls are landmarks and details of buildings, which you need to match up with photographs on the map. One course is about a mile long and covers the area of the oldest part of town; the second course is about twice as long and extends the course higher up the town.
When you’ve found all the controls, the place will be revealed from where you can collect a completion certificate.
On the reverse of the maps you’ll find information about the landmarks you have visited.
