Anyone climbing in the quarry does so at their own risk. The landowner wants to make visiting climbers aware that this is a quarry with the associated dangers that come with it - in particular the potential for loose rock.
Access is permitted to experienced recreational climbers on the following conditions and continued access is reliant on climbers respecting them:
No instructed groups
Publication of guidebook information should be with the permission of the landowner.
Parking and Approach
Please don't block access at the barrier by the access track - this is required for access by the tennant and will result in access issues for climbing if blocked. The best place to park is in either of the laybys located a short walk from the access track to the north or south. Both of these laybys are also near gates which provide access to farmers fields - again please don't block these.
Open access land, designated under the Countryside & Rights of Way Act (2000) give area access rather than linear access as provided by public rights of way. It also gives a legal right of access specifically for climbing, as well as walking and other quiet recreation on foot.
Please bear in mind however that the landowner still has the right to restrict access for up to 28 days per year (often used on public safety grounds for shooting in moorland areas), and can also apply for longer term restrictions with Natural England (such as bans on dogs, or regular restrictions during particular times of year). It is important to check for these restrictions regularly as they can be added at short notice – all details for open access land in England can be found on Natural England’s website.
