Corndon Hill is located 4 miles North of Bishops Castle on the western side of the A488 and was last used for SINS in 2015.
It rises to over 500m and provides spectacular panoramic views of the Marches landscape.
It provides plenty of challenges for the orienteer; complex boulder fields, craggy outcrops and scree slopes, a tricky quarried area on a slope, lightning-fast open grassland and heath, more huge boulders, slower going heather, marsh and gorse scrub.
This year we will be using a new map surveyed and drawn by Dave Peel.
Dogs will be permitted in the car parking field but must be on a lead at all times and owners must clean up any mess their dog creates.
Buzzards, skylarks, ravens and red kites are often seen and if you do have reason to stand still in the lee of the hill, absolute peace and quiet.
