Now updated for all events in the calendar, except the odd one or two who don't provide a GR in their details - I guess you have to enter the walk to find out the start details.

If anyone finds a GR which deposits you in the middle of the sea when you follow the link, it'll be because I've transposed digits, so please let me know. So far as I know, none of the events start off-shore.

We are ahead of you on this one. During the course of last week some new fields appeared on the entry pages for events (and probably social events) to show the GR of event starts which then will link through to a multimap map of the start.

Now I have to go back through all the current entries and complete those fields. Take a look at the entry for the Founders challenge for an example.

I think this is a very good idea. I will look at adding one to the East Lancs website for our next Challenge event. I assume it is just a link to an external website like multimap which can be edited into the text.

I propose that a map of the starting point location is included with all future events. A simple click of the button would then immediately show to the enquirer this essential information. All that is required is the national grid and 6-figure grid reference to set-up these maps.
