Crag features
Turkey Dip is a small sports crag close to Darley Dale in Derbyshire. It is extremely steep and hence doesn't offer much in the way of easy grades. Because of the overhanging nature of the crag, climbing is usually possible in any rain. Although the crag does take seepage after prolonged wet weather, not all the routes are affected and is worth looking at if everywhere else is wet!

Approach notes
Situated in the woodlands near Darley Bridge in Derbyshire. The following is a description of how to find it from the village :- If travelling by car, parking is available by the river in Darley Bridge itself, or on the road to Wensley, just beyond the Three Stags Head pub. Take the road signposted to H.J. Enthoven and Stanton Lees and follow this for 100m, until you get to the third gate on your left. Go over the style into the wood and follow the track, which can be muddy in prolonged wet weather. After 200m branch left around the lake and, almost immediately, cross a small wooden bridge over the stream. The crag overlooks the lake, just up on the right

Went today - lake has dried out and is a smelly mud pit - big sign pinned to the crag saying no climbing -is this actually the case. Signs also up for No Swimming or Diving.

Great place!! Lovely setting in a forest by the lake. Good set of routes to go at. Nicely bolted too.
