Nesting bird in the small cave between Junkyard Angel and Under Lock and Key, avoid these routes for a couple of months.

If you see barbed wire and no entry signs you're in the wrong place, its the next small pull-in further down the road (room for 2 cars).

4th August 2011 - padlocked gate, barbed wire and no entry signs did stop us from trying this out.

Easy 1 min walk from the gate pull in. Well bolted and on pleasant non polished limestone with a sunny aspect.
