The Brand Leicestershire, ENGLAND
Climbs 31 – Rocktype Slate – Altitude 100m a.s.l – Faces SE
Good, long routes on steep slate above a pond. This crag is on private land - in fact it is in someone's back garden! Best climbs:"Mango",18m (VS 4c). "Branded", 17m (E8 6c), "Need a Re-eeewind", (E3/4 5c) and Rhythm Collision, 21m (E5 6b). In fact they're all excellent!
PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THIS CRAG WITHOUT FIRST GETTING PERMISSION - this is EXTREMELY important. The owner was Sir Andrew Martin, ex Lord Lieutenant of Leicestershire. Sadly Sir Andrew has died since the publication of the last guidebook. I believe that Sir Andrew's widow is sympathetic to climbers but it is a long time since I have heard any info. about this crag so tread carefully. [Al Smith 4/01]
The telephone number to contact is 01509 890 269, and climbing is still permitted, as long as the group size is kept small, the weather is good, and permission is sought prior to climbing [N Ward 03/02]
This is still the number to call. The landowner is very friendly but is understandably keen to understand your level of experience.

Fab crag but please please give the owner a call. Really nice gent, very accomodating to let people climb in his beautiful garden for a small charity donation. Need at least an HVS leader to be worthwhile.|
