Wharncliffe Woods

Please note the map above is just to give an indication of where the venue is, specific details should be given in an event's details.


Wharncliffe Woods and Wharncliffe Chase is one of SYOs best orienteering areas, having been used several times previously for the British Championships and other major events.  The terrain is a mixture of runnable woodland, thicker plantation, and open moorland on the Chase.  Several areas of intricately contoured former mining works exist on the slope, and there is a good variety of rock detail.

Wharncliffe is a tough area, both physically and technically and with good course planning provides an excellent orienteering challenge.
