Access Banned

Climbing is currently banned at this venue - it lies within a local Nature Reserve and a legally designated SSSI.  It has been reported that climbers have recently cleared vegetation, placed lower off bolts and the clearance of mature trees to re-develop the site, without consultation or permission from the either land owners  (local authority) or the Wildlife Trust,  all potentially illegal activities within an SSSI,  have led to them to take this action.
