Rocktype Grit (quarried)
Hall Stones Quarry © jonathandavey
A lovely little quarry, with a selection of decent routes, some of which are excellent. It's a real suntrap and very tranquil.
The quarry is reached from the Todmorden–Hebden Bridge road via Cross Stone Road, which forks left just east of the centre of Todmorden. At the top of the hill, just before the church, turn left into Hey Head Lane and follow this for about a mile to two sharp bends. About 100 metres farther up the road, directly opposite the entrance to Hall Stones Green Farm, a public footpath leads through a stile to the quarry in around sixty seconds. It’s possible to park just over the brow of the hill (a further 200m up the hill beyond the stile) where a couple of cars can be squeezed in on the tight hand side. The cheeky amongst you might like to try parking on the hard standing in front of the mobile relay station which will keep you off the road.
Leave your dog at home and keep a low profile. Avoid the crag between 1st April and 31st July as there are very occasionally some nesting raptors here. If you want to know more just email me (Frank the Husky) and I'll tell you what I know.
