Rocktype Grit (quarried)
Altitude 180m a.s.l
Routes up to 70ft generally with good pro. Most routes are in the VS-HVS grades. Sheltered by trees and so takes time to dry out after rain. Worth visiting.
Lies just S of Hebden Bridge. From the A646 go S to the railway station, and a hairpin bend.
Follow the second footpath beside a factory - leads to the quarry, 5 mins walk.

|Went for a look last week with a view to checking for new guidebook. Very vegetated but rock (what we could see of it) looked good quality. Needs a dedicated team of enthusiastic locals to look after the place. The reward could be at least 2 new modern classic wall climbs either side of Himalayan Balsam. Any offers?|

|Visited 09, green lichen covering everything, overgrown. Some of the routes might have been climbable, but not too inspiring, didnt bother getting a rope out|

|I visited this in 2004, at the time it was covered in thick soaking vegetation, wasn't that easy to find either,.|
