Group Advice

There have been a number of rockfalls at Hodge Close. In 1996 the Health & Safety Executive wrote to local centres advising about the rockfall and stating 'it is not advisable to use the quarry for any outdoor activities at present'. Group users should take note of this and exercise their own judgement about the use of the crag for group activities.
