Terrain:
Forestry Commission coniferous woodland with patches of deciduous trees and significant undergrowth, including brambles. The planner has steered clear of the worst sections of brambles but it is impossible to avoid them all, so, if there isn't a heavy snowfall before the event, be prepared to do battle with them.
