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 can provide an excellent orienteering challenge.
