How to find us

Oakamoor Park is located off Mill Road in Oakamoor in the Staffordshire Moorlands, near Cheadle. The nearest postcode is ST10 3AG (for sat-nav purposes).

The Park

The Park is divided naturally by the River Churnet. The Paddock and Static Display areas will be on the left bank and the Public Car Park for visitors on the right bank, accessible via Mill Road.  

The Hill

Carr Bank offers a challenging stretch of road with a very steep 1:5 start. A road closure will be in place for the stretch of road (0.8 miles) from the village to Blakeley Lane, which is the beginning of the return route. For security reasons, a one-way system will be in place. Marshals will be positioned at regular intervals up the hill and along the route to ensure access to local residents if required as well as road safety.  

The Paddock

Up to 100 veteran, vintage and classic motor vehicles will be parked in Paddock, where you will be able to get close to the cars and chat with their owners.  

Volunteers

This event is run entirely by volunteers for local charity, Staffordshire Clubs for Young People. If you would like to volunteer, please contact us at info@oakamoorhillclimb.org

Camping

It is not permitted to camp overnight in Oakamoor Park but there are two very good campsites nearby: Hales Hall Caravan and Camping Park and Alton, The Star Camping and Caravanning Club. A link to both can be found here.
