Event 1 of 3 in the Autumn Intro Series at Stubbylee and Moorland Parks in Bacup.

There are two adjacent parks with the usual mix of paths, buildings, play areas, grassland and woodland.  In addition there are some unusual contour, rock and water features.  The main parks offer fast running, but there is a steep wooded escarpment to the west. The Light Green course will also visit a contoured quarry area.

The parks have a rich history, previously being owned by the Holt family and then local mill owners the Maden family. Their former home, the prominent Stubbylee Hall in the centre of the park is Grade II listed.  Recent ground works have added new features to the area including a BMX course.

The park is also home to the Stubbylee Community Greenhouses and the new cafe.  Both are staffed by volunteer trainees.

Rossendale Harriers 50th Mini Mountain Marathon (in conjunction with PFO CAPRICORN) is taking place on Cowpe Moor on the same day and at the same time as our Stubbylee event.  The two events are sharing Parking and Registration.  See flyer in Downloadable Documents below.
