Fell Running

Hayfield has a very active fell running group and there are some classic race routes close to the shack.  Check out the Hayfield Fell Races site for further information.

Mountain Biking

There are plenty of rideable trails around the area and the Shack has a secure bike shed.  If you can’t bring your own bike your could try hiring one from The Bike Factory.  They will deliver and collect although its probably best to pay a visit to the shop to be properly fitted.

Rambling and Walking

The mass trespass of Kinder Scout began from the old quarry on Kinder Road between ‘The Shack’ and the Sportsman’s Inn.   At the time of the trespass Harold was a young man and some of his family were the ‘keepers’ charged with keeping the trespassers off the shooting grounds.

Hayfield Sheepdog Trials and Country Show

A major event in the local calendar, Hayfield Sheepdog Trials take place in September each year.  As well as being a traditional agricultural show there is a variety of stalls with local crafts and food.  The Lantern Pike fell race takes place on Saturday, and there is usually a variety of entertainment for adults and children on both days.
