Haywood cliffs

Western Gritstone

A small quarry where sandstone was mined to make the local convent. It comprises of a near U-shaped cliff of loose sand stone approx. 30 feet high, with various potential routes all over. It is by no means a desirable place to climb, but a definite maybe for some, especially if you fancy putting some bolts on the walls. The small caves (which go back about 4 metres) offer excellent overhangs. The quarry is located in a small forest, thus, trees and branches hinder the climb, along with many midges. Again, not a great place to climb. For further details email we_be_on_fire@hotmail.com [Andy Newman 5/02]

Parking and Approach

Off the A 51 drive toward Great Haywood. Approx, 50 metres from the Clifford Arms pub is a sports and social club and village hall. Opposite is a small dust track next to a school where cars can be parked. Follow the dust track up to the old stone bridge. Before going under the bridge turn left through the forest and you\\'ll come to a stile. Enter the field and follow the path until you see the forest (this offers good views of the Shugborough grounds) and then in the corner of the forest you\\'ll see a stile. Over that and you\\'re there.It\\'s unclear is climbing is permitted, or even a good idea here. Now part of the National Trust [Dave Coleman]; details on access would be useful. [UKC ed 6/02]It is now part of the National Trust [6/02]
