Healey Heights & Towneley Colliery
The addition of Healey Heights to the often used Towneley Colliery more than doubles the competition area. HOwever, there is a quiet road and some lanes and tracks to traverse before reaching the Heights from the Colliery.
The Colliery gives some detailed orienteering amongst the old spoils, buildings and gullies. There is a deep stream valley too.
This is now linked to Healey Heights (or Healey Woods) which is another ex-mining area but less detailed, though there are some unusual features and tricky parts. Take care with your route choice between the two areas.
