There are two sets of traffic lights in the town centre: from the east, via Talke/Kidsgrove, turn right at the first set; from the west, via the M6 junction 16, turn left at the second set.

Central Forest Park "O" Challenge

A FREE event to mark the opening of a Permanent Orienteering Course and part of the City of Stoke on Trent Walking Festival.

We supply an attractive coloured map specially drawn for this event, and as much help as you need. You can navigate around yourself and take your time looking for easier to find posts, or prove yourself against the clock by finding them all. This is a fun challenge for all ages and abilities who enjoy the open air.

You can have extra help as we will have guided walks to show you how to find some of the marker posts. These will start at 11:00 am, 12:00 pm and 1:30 pm

From Town Road in Hanley take the B5049 (Chell Street) towards Smallthorne. After about 800 m turn left into the car park.
