Please read and adhere to the parking and approach information.
Significant rockfall took place in March 2022 on the RHS of Red Wall, particularly around the route Fun in the Sun. Loose rock is very likely to remain on this part of the crag - caution is advised to anyone using this area.
Parking and Approach
There is a degree of tension in relation to parking, this has increased recently and there have been instances of damage to parked vehicles by annoyed locals.
Due to the narrow steep nature of the approach road there are issues with vehicles causing obstruction to road users.
Several farmers use the dirt track leading off Salter's Lane towards the quarry and it is particularly important that they are able to freely enter and exit the track.
The broad entrance to a dirt track is on the left a bit after the left turn for Masson Lees farm, there is some parking space available here but the majority of this hard ground is required for large vehicles (including large articulated lorries) turning into and out of the farm track and should be left clear.
Do not drive or park on or up the track itself.
Do not park in spaces on the road marked as passing places.
The track itself is used by at least three separate farms and large vehicles requiring a wide turning circle frequently pass along it. For this reason the farmers have asked for the spaces directly opposite the track entrance to be kept clear of parked vehicles.
Following the above advice means there are a very limited number of parking spaces, as such it is advisable to lift share and consider parking further away and walking in where possible, especially during summer evenings and weekends.
Other avenues are being explored in the hope of resolving the issue. Doing the most we can to avoid conflict in the meantime will greatly assist with these efforts.
However, anyone parking anywhere on Salter's Lane should be aware that this in itself is a source of friction. Anyone concerned about a repeat incident of vehicle damage (broken mirrors) might consider using a dashboard camera!
