Terrain Description

The Hawth Woods is sandwiched in the middle of The Hawth Theatre and Southgate Playing Fields. The woods were a site of great industry and the plethora of deep depressions were formed when iron ore was dug out during the Bronze Age and through into the Eighteenth Century. The woodland has an extensive network of large and small paths which makes it suitable for our less experienced competitors, whilst challenging for sprint orienteering.


We can have access to the toilets at The Hawth Theatre if it is open.


A Trail-O event will take place at the same time as the Park-O event.

Full leg cover and bramble bashers recommended. Please bring your own drinking water.
