About Hadleigh Farm
Construction of the Mountain Bike course was completed in March 2011.
Hadleigh Farm in Essex was chosen because it fulfills requirements as a technically challenging course.
Hadleigh Farm is owned by the Salvation Army. The venue covers a 550-acre site including beautiful grassland and woodland. It also includes the surrounding countryside of Hadleigh Castle Country Park.
The terrain is hilly with open grass land covered by low shrubbery. The site offers some fantastic gradients for mountain biking and great viewing opportunities for spectators. The course is set against the backdrop of the 700-year-old ruins of Hadleigh Castle.
