There is a coaching and training session on Saturday 21st April at Canklow. The area is comprised of deciduous woodland and open common land with a good path network and complex contour detail. Sessions are suitable for all ages and abilities including experienced club members.
Please park in the small car park (S60 2BD) at the end of Boston Castle Grove, here
The sessions will start at 1pm. Please arrive by 12.50pm so we can get started by 1pm. Parents who wish to accompany their children on the activities are encouraged or alternatively are very welcome to join the adult's group and have a go themselves. Children under 7 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. All participants should wear full leg cover and sturdy footwear and should bring a water bottle and a waterproof.
Cost will be £3 per session to non-members, free to club members.
Canklow Woods is a sloping area with a mixture of deciduous woodland, open and semi-open. All along the top of the slope are the remains of stone workings which provide good contour detail. The area is criss-crossed by a complex path network.
It is on the edge of Rotherham and very accessible, with the southern boundary of the area being less than a kilometre from junction 33 on the M1.
