Derbyshire Venues & Accommodation For Every Occasion

Discover Your Inner Explorer!


This year Carsington Water have teamed up with British Orienteering to be able to offer a series of orienteering events aimed at getting families out and about.

The events are usually held on a Sunday with maps available to purchase from the centre for just &1.

The courses involve searching for bright plaques that are hidden around the site.

Carsington Water set up 2 courses of varying difficulties and most families manage to complete both courses.

There is usually a simple question to be answered at each marker point as well as the challenge to see who can do it the fastest!
