Stile Cop Car Park

Stile Cop Car Park

Stile Cop Road, Rugeley, Staffordshire, WS15 1QR

Stile Cop car park offers mountain bikers access to nearby trails by the daytime and is a great spot to view the dark starry skies by night. The car park is surrounded by trees, affecting views towards the horizons; however, the trees also block surrounding light pollution, leaving excellent views of the skies above Cannock Chase AONB.


Stile Cop Car Park is a Go Stargazing Site. The location has been identified by the Go Stargazing team as a good location for stargazing based on local light pollution levels, distance from nearby towns and cities and offers a safe place to park.
