Don Whillans Hut

Located at the Roaches in Staffordshire, the Don Whillans Hut is a unique building, superbly located amongst the buttresses and boulders of this historic climbing area.

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Don Whillans Hut will be closed from March 20th 2020. This closure will be reviewed at the end of April and thereafter on a monthly basis.

The hut is leased by the BMC and administered by a volunteer team. It is situated on the Roaches Estate, which is managed by the Staffordshire Wildlife Trust.

Location: Rockhall Cottage, The Roaches, Grid Ref: SK 007622

The hut can accomodate up to 12 people, mixed, in two rooms. There are full cooking and dining facilities, a drying room and showers. Parking in lay-by approximately 400
yards.

Groups that include Under 18s must comply with the BMC Child Protection Policy . Disabled access is not currently easy at this site.
