Parking and Approach

NOTE-the farmer has blocked the access mentioned below, and now I would leave vehicles parked in Wookey Hole (pub car park) and hoof it. [Jon Wilkinson 6/03] Otherwise you drive up there and then have the reverse from hell! [Penny Farthing 6/03]Split Rock is reached from the main Wells to Wookey Hole road. For safety reasons, the following is the only permitted approach: about one mile from Wells town centre there is a sharp bend to the right just past the EMI works, and about 300 metres after there is a narrow road to the right which is followed for about 400 metres to a parking area on the left in front of the gate to the quarry itself. Do not block the farmer's entry to the field opposite -- instead, if the car park is full, return to Wells and approach by foot. Do not turn right onto the main road after leaving the crag; nor attempt to access the crag coming from Wookey Hole.
