Details

Description:Chinley Churn will be new to many orienteers, having beenmapped for the first time in 2015. The terrain is very fast and runnable rough grassland withlittle bracken or heather to impede progress. Areas of old quarries, with many small hills, boulders, crags and depressions provide complex and challenging navigation on steep, sometimes rocky slopes. The eastern area comprises a terraced scarp slope with quarry workings and other rock features. The north-western area is the more gently inclined dip slope, with depressions and linear marshes. The connecting ridge rises above 400 metres, with views east towards Kinder Scout and west to Manchester.The whole area is grazed by sheep, with virtually no trees. Shorts are permitted. Typical to the area, there are many dry stone walls, gates and stiles.
