Afternoon All, I was in the last weekend. There is now a substantial fence preventing access from below. Anyone know who owns the quarry? I'm willing to clean/tidy the place up if the end result is some safe cracking climbs.

A good little quarry with some worthwhile routes. The locals could do with having a clean up day though to keep ontop of the rubbish problem, both in the quarry and surrounding woodlands.
