Beerhouse Buttress

Peak Limestone

This is another of those peak venues which was probably dismissed by earlier generaitons as being too small to bother with but, through the efforts of some dedicated new routers, it has been transformed into an attractive little crag in a pleasant location. The pub after which it takes its name has now closed down, which is a great shame since the landlord used to allow you to use his car park, providing that you stopped by for a pint at the end of the day - a suitable excuse if every there was one! Now use of the car park comes with no hidden bonuses.

Crag information
Climbing Area: Peak District Rock Type: Limestone
Importance: CRoW Land: No
Ownership: Unknown No. of Routes: 20
Within National Park: No Year Developed:
Grid Reference: SK079724

Parking and Approach

The crag is situated above the railway line that runs parallel to the A6 in Ashwood Dale, just to the east of Buxton. It is behind the derelict pub just beyond the water treatment works. Park in the old pub car park (obviously this may change if the pub is redeveloped). Go behind the pub and follow the steps up left into the old garden. Go to the top of this to get past the fence then follow the wall until you pop out onto the railway line. Cross the line carefully and the crag can be seen above you. Walk left of the crag to find a small path which leads back up rightwards to the crag.

Went to have a look on 24/02/18. Old pub (still closed) is under redevelopment and has limited parking in a lay-by. Mainly full of skips/trade vehicles or refuse. Space for 1 car when I arrived. The original car park, as noted in BMC Peak Limestone North guide (2015) says to park on a small concrete bridge about 100m back towards Buxton. This would block an entrance to some more works and has multiple, very obvious "NO PARKING" signed erected. The gate is firmly locked which would otherwise enable access up the steep bank to the railway line crossing and crag, also with many signs denying entry. 

I would ask that a regional rep takes a look at the site and feedbacks with wether climbing is still permitted. From the outset, I think access would be unlawful (bypassing a locked gate/railway crossing)
