Portishead Quarry

Avon and Somerset

Contains a number of steep, bolted lines and a good trad slab. Not to be confused with the nearby 'Black Rock Quarry' as both venues are labelled as Black rock Quarry on OS maps.

Update (27/03/07) - Avon Wildlife Trust have now reopened the quarry following the scaling of loose rock in partnership with the BMC. The project involved removing a significant amount of loose rock around the large slab, resulting in some superficial marking to the slab - this should decrease in time.
