Rock type is quarried limestone as any local will tell you, not Forest stone (=hard sandstone). Dave Jury
Bruce - I am no geologist, but the crag flakes, just like south wales sandstone. Limestone doesn't flake it crumbles, or comes off in chunks. And there isn't any other limestone nearby. All the houses along the tramway into the grag are made from sandstone. I can get a geologist opinion off Chris Shorrock, one of the South Wales guidebook writers if that helps, cheers Adrian Eggleton
Approach from Ruspidge road by taking the last turning on the left before the twin pubs, Tramway road at a small converted chapel. Go along until parking bay on right.
