Hawksnest – Classic Practice ground in the peak district between Buxton and Leek. This locations has some great rocks and the famous ‘hawks nest’ a long section of rocks that runs straight up the hill side. It also has a cracking stream that can be quite slimy and some other technical parts in the bottom. The owner of the land charges £5.00 per rider per day, this is very reasonable as there is loads to go at.


Dudwood Farm

Dudwood Farm is a cracking little practice ground owned by Barry and Sally Burton. Again there are lots of rocks in a lovely little wood, also a nice stream with some great sections. Barry is a true ambassador for the sport and always happy to help.

Barry and Sally also run the YMSA trials club which hosts some great trials for modern and classic trials in North Derbyshire.
