Approach notes

Leave Hodge Close carpark by way of the track behind a locked gate on the left. This heads down towards a working quarry. Track behinds to the right and goes downhill. On the left is the hole in the ground/quarry known as The Works! Use the rope & ladder to carefully access the floor of the quarry.

Please do not park in front of the gate leading down to the quarry. This is private land and access is required by the quarry owner. Park 20 metres away in the main Hodge Close parking area.


No guides found for this crag

Just a heads up, the gate down to the quarry is used from time to time, please dont block the gate with your car, the proper parking is only about 20 metres away!

Volunteer to moderate The Works
We rely on volunteers to moderate their local crags. You would check updates and approve climbs added to the database. It's a very easy job, and all you need is a guidebook and an hour or two each month. [ read more ]
