SW facing limestone quarry on the other side of the main road from Stanhope Dean. The routes tend to be longer and generally harder than the dene.

Be aware of occasional rockfall from above!

Approach notes

Park in Stanhope and walk up Church Lane to the right of the church. Turn left at the top. There is a small public footpath to the left of the Methodist Chapel heading North and uphill. Follow this through the gate and continue to the 2 bridges. The quarry is off to the left.

Alternatively, park in Crawleyside and walk downhill to the end of the escape lane. Opposite the entrance to Stanhope Dean is a house. Walk through the yard (public footpath), over a style and continue down a wooded track. After about 140 paces, there is a small path on the left. Follow this over a small fence - continue uphill then bear left into the quarry.

All sectors are on the map.
