The start is on the access road 50m from the mansion house. Enter the walled area of the park through the American garden gate and join the historic Long Walk. Follow the rough compacted earth and tarmac patharound the perimeter of the park before exiting the gardens via a gate by the lake. Continue along the access road by the lake and run through a gate and down a short, muddy slope towards the lake again. This area by the lake can be very wet but soon a left turn by a dead tree leads to a mown track across the meadow. Turns left onto another mown track and then turn right in front of the house to begin another circuit. On completing 2 laps enter the finish funnel immediately in front of the house.
