Permanent Orienteering Courses

There are quite a lot of permanent orienteering courses in SE Wales designed mainly by SWOCmembers for local authorities. Many have unfortunately fallen into disrepair and or the maps are out of date. The 2 courses below are recent and are suitable for beginners or improvers. More courses will hopefully be added.
