Increased Traffic Through Great Hucklow Sunday 28th January 2018

Posted: Fri, 26 Jan 2018 14:28 by Deborah Stansfield

Derwent Valley Orienteers have advised that The East Midlands Orienteering Championships are being run on Bretton Clough and Eyam Moor on the morning of Sunday 28th January 2018. They have permission from Natural England and all the landowners involved. The event will be based at the Gliding Club.

Competitors are expected to be arriving between 9:30 and 11am and leaving from about 12:30 but this will be more gradual when leaving. About 320 people have entered online, so an estimated 160 cars will be making their way to the event most probably through Great Hucklow.

The races are between 1.9 and 8.9km depending on the competitor's age group, but not very spectator friendly, especially in January.

They have apologises for the short notice - originally they were parking in a field up near Stanage House but the farmer withdrew permission due to water logging, so they have had to replan the event in the last few days.
