The crag also goes by the name of "Devonshire Buttress".
This is another one of those peak venues which was probably dismissed by earlier generaitons as being too small to bother with but, through the efforts of some dedicated new routers, it has been transformed into an attractive little crag in a pleasant location. The pub after which it takes its name has now closed down, which is a great shame since the landlord used to allow you to use his car park, providing that you stopped by for a pint at the end of the day - a suitable excuse if every there was one! Now use of the car park comes with no hidden bonuses.
The crag is situated above the railway line that runs parallel to the A6 in Ashwood Dale, just to the east of Buxton. It is behind the derelict pub just beyond the water treatment works. Do not park in the old pub car park or in front of the caged yard. Park in the large lay-by across the road heading into Buxton. Hop over the wall where the river has been diverted into a concrete chase. Step over the river and head upstream towards the crag. Cross the line carefully. A small path on the left hand side will take you to the base of the routes.
