Restricted Access

Bosco's Den itself is highly important as an archaelogical and conservation site and climbing is not permited inside the cave itself.


Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 30 June

Reason: Nesting Birds

All routes east of (rightwards when looking in) from "Sam's Made Up" are restricted from March 1st until June 30th due to nesting choughs,   including all the routes in Bosco's Cave and Paddling Pool Area. Choughs are listed as Schedule 1 species under the Wildlife and Countryside act and it is a criminal offence to deliberately or recklessy disturb them or their nests.
