went there today - bottled out of the solo of the Jug Jam. But the apprach is easy, however you can not park as per the Roaches guide. You need to go up the hill, past Lodge Barn Road about 50m there is a side road where you can park.

just been to the erf rocks (back of roaches guide) just on from Knypersley rocks - in the guide it says climbing is tolerated landowner came out to us today and said they never gave permission for it to go in the guide- he said we'd be OK this once if you want to go there (its very green!) you need to ask for permission at the farmhouse

Nightmare to get to!!! the fields and paths are very overgrown and the main footpath is closed due to a collapsed bridge... will update soon if the bridge is fixed.
