We are proud to be hosting the 3rd Haggs Horizons Unlimited Adventure Meet, an activity meet with lots of opportunities to get out and explore the North Pennines – England’s Last Wilderness up on the ‘Roof of England’.
DON’T FORGET TO PAY WHEN YOU REGISTER!!
Trail rides to explore the local area and try out your riding skills – there will be trails suitable for all abilities. Typically these have lasted a good 5 hours and cover some of the wilder areas of the moors.
Join a guided road tour and enjoy the local scenery or even the opportunity to head across to the Lakes for the day! The views are just stunning up here on the ‘Roof of England’!
Have a go at the Haggs Challenge, a road orienteering course that will give you a taste of some of our stunning views and attractions!
Explore the underground world of the lead miner with a guided tour down Smallcleugh Mine
Get winched down ‘Happy Steve’s’ 360ft shaft to the Nent Force level, an underground canal built from Alston to Nenthead in the 1800s!
We will also have electric bicycles available for hire with suggested routes; maps of local walks, whether it’s a gentle stroll or energetic hike you’re after! and reduced entry to Killhope Lead Mining Museum a real gem to discover the amazing industrial heritage of this stunning area.
Saturday night we will have live music onsite, a bonfire, bar with local beers and BBQ!
Sunday will be an easy start, with the chance to watch the Beamish Trophy Trial which runs up the track next to our site. This is an historic event now in its 43rd year and is for motorbikes, sidecars and 3 wheeled vehicles manufactured before 1980!
Their description of the Haggs Bank section….. For cars and especially three-wheelers, Haggs Bank is passable with skill, a little luck and a bit of momentum on the corners!
It’s great fun to watch the trials, tribulations and sheer skill of some of the riders and with over 120 entering the competition there’s plenty of fun to be had!
We also offer half price accommodation to anyone wanting to extent their weekend either before or after the event. Contact us directly after you have booked your event pass for the weekend on firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this option.
