Wheata Woods is a pleasant area of deciduous urban woodland on the outskirts of Sheffield. It adjoins the village of Grenoside and is included on the larger map of Wharncliffe and Greno Woods used for the British Championships in 2011. Plenty of paths for the less technical courses with accurately mapped thickets and contour detail for the more technical courses.More details about Wheata Woods...
