Stronstrey Bank Quarry


A gritstone quarry in a lovely position above White Coppice, and although the climbing isn't the most spectacular, there are some decent, clean, and challenging routes - a good evening venue to escape the dreaded Wilton/Anglezarke midges. Care required with loose rock on some topouts.For further details on the bouldering see

Carl Spencer reports (May 2020) that there is a bird of prey nesting near Canine Crawl, so avoid this area for now. Also while COVID restrictions are on, probably NOT best to park in White Coppice, but to park at Anglezarke and walk in from the south. Paul Evans, Area sec
