Crag features

Overhanging the River Coquet a couple of miles upstream of Walkworth lies an idyllic crag. Best visited in the spring months when the rock is dry and the vegetation has eased. Excellent, solid sandstone provides some very entertaining routes.

High Board, Wet Fly and Ancient Briton are all musts for the Northumbrian adventurer!

Groups should be wary of the lack of ground space around the base of the crag, best visited in pairs.

Approach notes

Turn north off the B6345 at Acklington, heading for Warkworth. After 3km turn left past Morwick Hall go down a track to the old mill. There is limited parking.

Lovely little crag with brilliant rock (Millstone Grit). It can take a lot of traffic, altoigh the crag bottom path is a bit iffy.

Although the climbing is excellent, in an idyllic location, avoid humid evenings in the Midge season. Mu only visit resulted in a trip to the Doc's the following day and a course of antibiotics to counteract the hundreds of bites the little ba$tards had inflicted.

Esoteric but excellent and well worth a visit for routes from Severe to E5.A very gritty sandstone, hard and sound in a lovely location. Climbable in the wet.It catches the evening sun and is only a couple of miutes walk in. Classics include High Board Severe,Wet Fly VS,Ancient Briton E1/2 and The Butcher E3.
