All land belongs to someone and riding on it requires the owners permission - simple

Practising at ANY C&NW Trials venue, with the exception of Hawks Nest & Alvanley Trials Ground (by prior arrangement) is not allowed

If you're caught by the land owner, or if they find there have been riders practising we will lose the use of the venue completely.

Staffs Moorlands MCC

“1st Staffs Moorlands MCC Trial of 2016 will quite possibly be the last one held at Tittesworth Farm, Blackshaw Moor, ST13 8JN. We’ll be holding it on Sunday 28th February, starting at 11am. The ‘new’ management of the farm take over on 1st March and it’s unclear what the new arrangements will be regarding use of the venue for Trials.

The Trial will be round 1 of the club championships for 2016 (Last year’s trophy winners will be able to collect theirs on the day).

Entries accepted up to the start time from all Adult class riders (£15) and Youth A & B class riders ((£14).

We’ll give a free ride to anyone who provides an observer.

The event will be signposted off the A53 Leek to Buxton road.
