.A sunny side and a dark side - choose depending on the conditions!

Storm Arwen brought down many trees and there is now a lot of timber on the ground.. The blowing over of trees pulled large root boles out of the ground meaning a number of lines were overhung by unstable rock and soil. These threats has been largely removed following BMC clearance events though ongoing erosion may mean there is a small risk. As with all mountain limestone crags a helmet is a good idea.

Parking and Approach

Large (charge) car park in the village (with toilet block) and a fair bit of street-side parking. The easiest approach is along the nature trail (currently £2.50). Other approaches available.

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.

Tree and loose rock clearance has been undertaken so good to go again. Some loose material from time tontime so a helmet is a good idea.
