A NEW orienteering course has been set up for people to try in Accrington.

The Prospects Foundation in partnership with Pendle Forest Orienteering Club and Hyndburn Borough Council has established a new orienteering course in Peel Park.

The original course only had 13 stations and covered just Peel Park and The Coppice area but the new course has 26 stations and covers the Arden Hall and Plantation Road areas.

There are 26 marker-posts to find and four suggested courses for all ages and abilities, ranging from very easy to very hard.

Roger Plum from Prospects Foundation said: "To work with Pendle Forest Orienteers and Hyndburn Borough Council to renew and extend the course has been a fantastic project and will hopefully encourage people to explore the site in a new way."
