Orienteering is all around


The sunny, mild (though chilly) weather makes for great walking.  But some people need an extra spice to their strolls; and like to add orienteering to their fun.  A new addition to the way that orienteering trails work is posts along the way that feature 'QR codes' - like this notice on the Ilam Estate.
One can buy the instructions on how to use them from the National Trust shop at the hall.

But... is my reaction a bit old-fashioned in thinking that it's a shame that beautiful countryside should need these attractions to keep the interest up?
