Rendlesham forest was largely destroyed by the high winds of October 1987, but the new tree growth is now making the area seem more like forest again! The venue offers wonderful grass trails with short crossover sections of rounded pebbles and also some sandy stretches, and these are unspoilt by forest working – for obvious reasons. The gently undulating terrain will be enjoyed by all. You might like to bring a compass and map for the many turns !!! Don’t let the many turns put you off, it keeps the dogs happy and adds to the fun of the Rendlesham Rally.
