Bradwell Dale Quarry © Rockfax

Crag features

Two limestone crags either side of the B6049 just south of Bradwell. Developed with a small set of sport routes to add to some older trad routes. The faces are hidden from the road on the west side but visible on the east side. 

Approach notes

Do not park on the road in the dale since this will cause an obstruction. Instead park on the main road or side roads in the village and walk up the dale. The sport routes are on the hidden west side. Take a vague path up through the woods by an old gate. This leads to a lower quarry (a few routes) and on to an open area where the back wall gives the rest of the climbing.

The owner of Bradwell Parish Quarry (on the western side of the road) has requested that people climbing in quarry don't create a mess when removing loose rock and vegetation to garden routes and please don't cut down any trees, however small. He would also like climbers to contact (text is fine) 07531001990 before climbing there so he knows who's about. Permission will normally be given. Updates on new routes will also be welcomed.

Please follow the access advice detailed below.

Restricted Access

A few different landowners own parts of the quarried rock in Bradwell Dale and as a result the access situation for each area differs:

Morton Quarry, Upper Tier: access not permitted by the landowners

Bradwell Parish Quarry including Lower Tier (aka Bottle Bay), the Cave Area and The Ivy League:  asccess is permitted here, providing climbers don't create a mess when removing loose rock and vegetation to garden routes and don't cut down any trees, however small. The landowner asks that climbers contact him (text is fine) on 07531001990 before climbing there so he knows who's about. Permission will normally be given. Updates on new routes will also be welcomed.

Open Book Bay: access not permitted by the landowners
