Event Report

Wrong answers in Tytherington – the curse of the lamp post!

There were a large number of wrong answers - 45 in all – in Tytherington last night. We immediately credited 18 of these (10 at #108 lamppost, 6 at #137 (stone posts) and 2 at #111 (hydrant) before announcing the winner of the Hydrant Trophy.

Of the remaining 27 wrong ‘uns, 22 were lamppost related. 

Where a control attracted a single wrong answer, we have attributed it to misjudgement by the competitor.

Where a control attracted more than one wrong answer, we have investigated further. More than 20 other runners found the correct control at #102, 106, 123, 124, 126, 130 and 141 – nuff said?

Ian and Grahame.

Additional information from the event team

Planner Ian Gilliver has provided the following information:


The pub has some 45 parking spaces and the parade of shops opposite also has parking but this can be busy. If these spaces are full please park on streets nearby.


it’s a Hungry Horse pub, and there’s a wide range of dishes.

The kitchen is open until 22:00. Please order food when you’re back from your run.


Scale: 1:10,000

The Competition Area is bounded to the west by the West Coast Main Line, to the south by the River Bollin, and to the east by the Silk Road.

To the west of Manchester Road, the 1980/90s estate either side of Dorchester Way is made of up of residential culs-de-sac, many of which are linked to adjacent roads by pedestrian routes. To the east of Manchester Road lies a 1960s estate, and to the northeast lies the Tytherington Industrial Estate which now has some housing around its edges (including an area currently under construction and therefore Out of Bounds).

Please also note the following :

  1. We have added a new 'high tower' symbol to the map to  represent electricity pylons - so that competitors can navigate to controls along the Middlewood Way, and
  2. The roads and paths within Beech Hall school are open to the public outside school hours.


IMPORTANT: Everyone runs for 60 minutes

Each control is worth 10 points, so controls are numbered from 101 to 145.

Penalties: 5 points per minute or part thereof.

Please note that west of Manchester Road most of the controls are lamp posts, there being few other NSL features there. We’ve taken care not to have LP controls next to each other on the clue sheet, but you will need to take care to write the answer in the correct box.
