This Guidebook is now out of print, and unavailable


Includes "great" (or not) sites like Markfield Quarry and the

infamous Slawston Bridge. Indexed with some photos. Some of it is a bit out of date as many of the crags are quarries and so some have been

either knocked down or filled in.

While the guidebook itself is out of print it's contents have been reproduced with permission of the original authors at http://www.leicesterclimbs.f9.co.uk/ and can be freely printed out.
