Bosley Cloud

Western Gritstone

North-facing gritstone probably historically quarried. Home of the famous 'double sunset' on Midsummer's eve. Some crags may prove elusive.

No access issues reported. The area is an environmentally sensitive marginal heathland. The whole of this hilltop is popular with the public. When you are at the bottom of the crag you will be out of sight and hearing of those above - beware of objects being thrown from the top..

CRoW Information

Open access land, designated under the Countryside & Rights of Way Act (2000) give area access rather than linear access as provided by public rights of way. It also gives a legal right of access specifically for climbing, as well as walking and other quiet recreation on foot.

Please bear in mind however that the landowner still has the right to restrict access for up to 28 days per year (often used on public safety grounds for shooting in moorland areas), and can also apply for longer term restrictions with Natural England (such as bans on dogs, or regular restrictions during particular times of year). It is important to check for these restrictions regularly as they can be added at short notice – all details for open access land in England can be found on Natural England’s website.  

Group Advice

Not a suitable group site - poor belays.
