As with many similar sites, the landowners  made it clear to the BMC  in 2011 that they do not give consent for access for climbing.  They give the reasons for this as being historcial poor behaviour by climbers, including placing fixed equipment without thier permission, lighting fires and damaging gates and access tracks.  

They do not appear to have been proactively enforcing this ban and they have not been in contact with the BMC for many years.  It's likley that climbers seen here would be asked to leave by the landowners but there have not been any reports of any confrontations or issues in recent years.  If confronted or asked to leave by the landowners, then it's advised to be polite, follow the advice given and report thye circumstances to the BMC.
