Saturday Series 3 at Shire Brook Valley
Sat 23rd Nov 2019 Start Times 12:30 - 15:00
Fantastic to see such a good turnout despite the weather. Thank you to all our volunteers who had extra work to do as the building wasn't available as they are carrying our repairs. (That also meant us going back to basics with the toilet when we weren't able to get any of our normal suppliers to cover the event).

Take to the A57 towards Worksop from the Parkway and at the first big island take the first left, B6064 towards Woodhouse. Take the first right into Stone Lane. The car park is on the right. Drive carefully as you will meet competitors on their way to the start. The car park has a height barrier which is 1.8 metres.
If getting there by public transport it is about 20 minutes by bus from the centre of Sheffield, there are several options use the Yorkshire Travel Planner to get to Coisley Hill from where it is a 5 minute walk down Stone Lane.
As there is no cafe we will be selling hot drinks and cakes to raise money for SYO junior squad funds. Cake donations welcome. There will also be a portaloo.

If you complete a course and there is still time you are welcome to try another.
See below for details on the courses on offer.
|Course||School Years||Distance||Technical Level||Who is it for?|
The easiest course and a great place for children to start. The course is entirely on paths and each time you have to make a decision - which path to take, there will be a control point.
The next step up and a good place for teenagers etc. to start. The course will use paths but also other line features - Fences, streams etc.
Harder still, the Orange course introduces:
Those doing either of the Orange courses need to be able to judge distances, orientate the map using surrounding features and a compass, use attack points and be bold enough to venture off paths for up to 30 metres
Ideal for improvers or confident adult beginners. The navigation difficulty increases - you will be using simple contours and point features. There's often a catching feature beyond the control to stop you going to far wrong.
|5||As technically difficult as the area will allow.|
|5||As per the green course but further in distance.|
Shire Brook Valley reserve is mostly wooded, with open areas and a good path network.
Sheffield Parks and Woodlands website says "Situated in South East Sheffield, the Shire Brook Valley contains over 100 hectares of land protected for Nature Conservation and recreation. The Reserve is open to the public all year round. Local Nature Reserve status was gained for the valley in 1999". A booklet 'Shire Brook, The Forgotten Valley', written by local people about the fascinating history of the valley is described here. As well as the Shire Brook Valley Visitor Centre, the reserve also contains Birley Spa Victorian Bathhouse.
