JCBs have been at work. Cleared the base of the quarry but also piled up large pieces of stone at foot of the crag. This means the first few feet of the routes on the RH side have disappeared.

No Access ... I spoke to the land owner on 28/02/21 in which he stated that the quarry is now privately owned and he does not want anyone going in the quarry, this was due to ‘youths smashing bottles and damaging his excavator’
