Eaves Wood is situated near Silverdale, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) on the eastern edge of Morecambe Bay in Northern Lancashire.

An area of ancient woodland, Eaves Wood is the property of the National Trust and is characterised by limestone scars and pavements, which are a feature of the landscape in the Silverdale area.

The limestone with its pockets of thin soil supports numerous yew trees, other species to be found there include ash, beech, birch, hawthorn, hazel,holly, larch, lime, oak and pine.

There is a good path network and it is a popular area with the public (although quiet at night)

Entry and Start Procedures:

No entry on the day

Online entry only via Sientries. No entries on the night

Any SROC members who do not own a dibber can request - contact Chris Roberts - to collect one at the event and keep it for the foreseeable future.

Entries are £7 per senior (£8 for non-members of British Orienteering), and £3 per junior/student.

Start times from 1700 to 1800. Choose a 15 minute start block. Courses close at 1930

The start and finish are adjacent to the parking area.

Courses will close promptly at 19:30 – if you think there is any chance you could want over 90 minutes then arrive in time for an early start.

Control descriptions will be on the map and you can download them from here (to be added) and bring them with you.

All controls, plus the finish, will be in beacon mode, meaning that you can punch contactlessly if you are using a SIAC.

  • Sanitise your hands using the sanitiser provided and keep at least 2m apart.
  • Clear and check your dibber

Please maintain approximately one minute (or more) intervals between starters, physically punch the start and then pick up your map from the box provided (please ensure you only take one).

Finish/Download:

Please move away from the Finish quickly, and proceed directly to download forming a queue if necessary keeping at least 2m apart. Use the sanitiser provided before you download and take the splits – these are pre cut and you do not need to touch the printer. Please move away from download quickly.

Results will not be displayed on the day but will be on the website www.sroc.org in the evening. Dependant on mobile signal we hope to have live on-line results. Scan the QR code on your splits.
