Crag features

Clean dry boulders on a hillside - recently uneartherd by forest clearance. A visit can easily be combined with a trip to Hunters Stones (250 m away)

Approach notes

Park in the forestry comission car park across the road. Just north of lindley wood resevoir on the B6451

Back at Norwood yesterday, after a six year break. Plants and trees have transformed the place, giving a green happy feel, the boulders are now super clean and grippy, a true gem of a place!
