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.

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.

The hut is so conveniently close to the crags that you can almost belay from the hut!

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 away.

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

To check on booking availability please contact the Booking Secretary on rockhall@ outlook.com
