I went there today and the 8th and 7th quarry's lie behind a gate signed PRIVATE LAND. I accessed the 8th via Western Grit description i.e. over the fence at the (2nd) style so I'd unknowingly trespassed! Further to this: https://www.thebmc.co.uk/modules/RAD/viewcrag.aspx?id=1004

hi matthew none of my friends have had any issues either but according to a friend the BMC have said its out of bounds cause of people camping and leaving litter about. They're trying to get an access officer to pursuade the farmer to let climbers continue using the quarrys. If i hear anything else ill post it up on here :).

@climbingmonkee i've been climbing here for a couple of years ans i've never had any access issues or seen any landowners. has anyone else had any issues here?
Matt Reid - 17/Apr/12

i went up today for a few hours of climbing. I had just finished setting up when along came a farmer and gave me a load of grief for apparently tresspassing. I decided to pack up my gear before it went further just thought id warn you all its NOT worth the trouble!!!
