Celestial Twins and some fine trees © Chris Craggs

Crag features

AKA Beresford Dale. Tucked away in Wolfscote Dale in the Southern Peak are a couple of rocky towers in an idyllic setting and known as the Celestial Twins. The Right Twin is a scruffy overgrown mess but the Left Twin is well worth a visit if you want somewhere out of the ordinary - chances are you will have the place to yourself apart from the occasional walker taking a look at the cave at the crag base.

Approach notes

There is parking for about a dozen cars at the lower end of the minor road (signed Beresford Dale) that runs south from Mill Lane - the road between Hartington and Warslow. This is 2km west of Hartington. Keep left at both junctions and stop before the ford!
Cross the footbridge and follow the path across the meadow to the cliff 5 mins away.

Access Advice

Restrictions apply from  15 February - 31 May. Reason - Nesting Birds


A pair of nesting ravens have returned to the crag - please avoid climbing here until the restriction ends.

Out of print:
This is actually quite a nice little crag in a lovely mellow setting. Not that much there but worth a look for a change, and it's in good condition for southern limestone.
