Seasonal Restrictions

Reason: Nesting Birds

This crag is on Open Access land and there is a legal right of access to it, however the farmer has requested that during May and June climbers avoid approaching the crag from the west or south to help prevent disturbance to nesting birds. Please also avoid visiting in large groups or bring dogs to the crag during this period.

Open access land, designated under the Countryside & Rights of Way Act (2000) give area access rather than linear access as provided by public rights of way. It also gives a legal right of access specifically for climbing, as well as walking and other quiet recreation on foot.

Please bear in mind however that the landowner still has the right to restrict access for up to 28 days per year (often used on public safety grounds for shooting in moorland areas), and can also apply for longer term restrictions with Natural England (such as bans on dogs, or regular restrictions during particular times of year). It is important to check for these restrictions regularly as they can be added at short notice – all details for open access land in England can be found on Natural England’s website.  

Climbed here today and the gamekeeper approached and asked very politely if we could wait until after nesting season to climb on the crag - suggested from late July onwards.
