Redmires Woods are the woodlands west of the three Redmires reservoirs. Most of the map is mature coniferous woodland with minimal undergrowth providing superb running, but at the northern edge it opens out to moorland sheep pasture. There are few paths. The area is dotted with quarry /mining workings, some of which provide excellent technical orienteering.More details about Redmires...
