Parking and Approach

UPDATE - I have been informed that this site is an SSI on account of the bats roosting in its deeper grooves and caves. Please keep off.Park in the layby just off the Hickleton-Barnburgh road at SE 485045. walk in around 10 minutes, follow the path along the wwods to reach the first site, which is an old quarry, some interesting problems in the corners and a very loose arete! Walk further to some more classic low-outcrop type stuff. I don't know if there is anything in a GUidebook - I've not seen any.
