The Cuttings is 5 minutes from the road behind the terraced houses in Easton. Park in the main street near the Mermaid Inn. Alternatively park down the road, around the bend from The Mermaid Inn, in Church Ope Car Park. This is better in that you wonât annoy the house owners of Easton so much. The drawback is that it is secluded and ripe for car theft so leave an empty car. Just by the Mermaid Inn, next to the bridge, a track leads east for 30m toward waste ground alongside houses. Then a small track ducks through some bushes to follow a wide dirt track up an incline for 200m to a summit. Another track leads rightwards to reach the Main Cuttings above a covered pipeline. The shorter New Cuttings is just to the right (looking out).
Another more direct approach (with no uphill bit for the lazy boulderers) is to follow a track leading directly east out of the back of the Mermaid Inn car park which leads to the coast path running past the New Cuttings.
The Ditch - Sadly this venue(and its routes) are no more!
