Speaking to somebody in the know at the Bristol climbing festival, its seems like the water authority that own the southern outcrop are soon to be doing some major work on the tunnel and rock stabilisation on the faces. I don't know how this will eventually affect the crag but is probably worth keeping an eye on developments and reporting on here if possible.

Now I'm moving next door thought I ought to visit. Very muddy and needs traffic as they say, but only scrambled around the southern outcrop, think there's still some space for some new routes. Yippee,

The section of "Heras" fencing has now been extended right across the crag,this however should not stop anyone wanting to climb at The Southern Outcrop as it can easily be circumvented by going round the back of the crag along a public footpath.

A large tree has fallen at the Southern Outcrop and although it has not affected any of the climbs the owners of the tunnel have erected an enclosure of Heras Fencing around the entrance,probably as a safety measure rather than a deterent to climbers.The fence can be easily circumnavigated so climbers can carry on as before(with care!)

Jackdaws nest in the many holes at the Southern Outcrop so is best to stay away from April - July.

The area at the bottom of the slabs is being coppiced by someone at the moment,I havent been present when this is going on but have climbed there regularly over the past couple of months.Please try and keep a low profile if you are intending to climb at Churchill and park considerately.

This crag is a real hidden gem with loads of history and no bloody sport climbing, seal of approval!

Cycled over from clevedon to have a bit of soloing fun. Great slab but couldn't locate the other outcrop.

The BMC have said that the crag is covered by the CRoW act, so i climbed here the other day for the first time. i didn't get turfed out, and the climbing was fun, though the cracks have become somewhat vegetated since climbing was last allowed!
