Crag features

Leigh Woods is owned and managed by the National Trust which permits climbing on a conditional basis. Read the access notes carefully, this is a sensitve site for conservation.

Approach notes

The furthest north quarry can be accessed from the towpath by the river. The rest of the routes can only be accessed by coming down through Leigh Woods. Do not cross the railway line. 

Restricted Access

In Quarry 5 a restriction from Gravity to Little Miss Dynamite inclusive is in place between 1st February and 16th May to protect nesting ravens.

In Quarry 4 the whole quarry is restricted from 1st March to 30th June to protect nesting peregrines.

 

Guidebooks

Hold your horses, it is almost definitely going in the new Avon guide. Theres a lot of rare plants and trees in the quarries so much surveying and negotiation is going on.

why is climbing discouraged here but tree climbing is encouraged and mountain biking celebrated? having just climbed a lovely little route here maybe its time to go public with the rest.

The "secret" part of Leigh woods is going to be well worth several visits once all is revealed. Seriously can't wait!
