Climbs 23 – Rocktype Grit (quarried) – Altitude 230m a.s.l – Faces S

Crag features
A minor quarry of local interest only. Routes up to 13m high with over half E1 or above, the rest mainly VS/HVS.

Many of the routes are overgrown with ferns and/or heather.

Some of the horizontal breaks have a lot of grit that washes into them after rain and may, therefore, need brushing.

fingery climbing is the order of the day here, whilst the gear is good up to the halfway break it tends to get a bit more sparse above this. if you don't like crimpy holds then there are plenty of undercuts/sidepulls to make use of. The Arete is worth calling in for if you're close by

"I've been visiting this wall for nearly a year and I've seen it expand, it now has a new wall at the rear of the church, and a new bouldering room upstairs. Great café and a Cotswold..."
