Approaching from Wilton Quarries, follow Scout Road for about three kilometers. Brownstones is on the right behind a row of cottages. Please be careful when parking as cars travel quickly around the bend.

Soloing with a matt in some areas at Brownstones along the quarry, is really fun, espiecially when your mates are underneath carring moving around with the Matt to keep it under you !!

The full topo can be found in the massive bible, beast of a book that is Lancashire Rock. Excellent problems though, can get very busy

Not a bad little spot, although can be somewhat of a sun trap if the weather\'s nice. Take your suncream - I didn\'t and paid the price ! A range of problems (not found any topos yet, so it\'s a case of take someone who knows the place, or just have fun and create your own). A few of the landings are a bit rough; a mat is useful. I have a load of photo\'s of the place - if you drop us a line I will email them to you.
