There isn't camping available at the venue. I have camped at whitegates campsite at Holmfirth before and it is pretty good, irs roughly 6 miles from scammonden. It is worth ringing them asap if you want to camp.

Scammy is much too chilled to have anything as anal as a paddock layout.

Get there early and at the end of the day get the trailer on solid ground before loading up.

Single seaters usually use the small triangle area on the left at the top of the hill just after passing through the gates, this gives more hard standing than the potentially soft field lower down where the organisers will be based.

Google has some good aerial pictures to get the lay of the land prior to you getting there.

That's why it's good to get there early. Also gives you time to recover after walking the hill.

Oh, and ignore the sign "to the dam" or similar pointing to the left as you approach a small bridge going under the M62. You need to go through this underpass and only then take a left.

This is all after you have turned off the A640 onto white roads of course.

Amazingly leaving the M62 Eastbound at J23 you cross and recross the M62 four times (Westbound one less), before you get to the hill.

Walk the hill???? Are you crazy.....I won't be doing any of that kind of thing - no need when you get 8-10 runs at the average event
Looking forward to it

I walked the hill once the first time I visited - NEVER AGAIN at least not without oxygen and an hour to recover.
