Crag features

A couple of small single pitch climbs that can be combined with a picnic and good views.

Restricted Access

The site was formerly in private ownership, but was acquired in 2005 by Shropshire Wildlife Trust. Although historically used for some climbing, The Trust do not wish to encourage access for this purpose, due to the state of the rock, and the site's proximity to Telford. The cliff is not particularly suitable for climbing due to the nature of the rock, the fact that unbridled access to the base of the cliff will not serve the nature conservation aspects of the site well. It also has a certain amount of loose rock, and directly overlooks a carpark, with the attendant risk of damage to vehicles.

In recent years (2010 onwards) the cliff has attracted a pair of peregrines, whose nest has been monitored by WIldlife Trust volunteers on a daily basis.
