Restricted Access

A large limestone quarry where access is unclear.

Note 26/03/24: It has been reported that climbers have been challenged by someone claiming to represent the landowner. The climbers were told climbing was not permitted and that the owner intends to start prosecuting climbers. It should be noted that trespass is a civil offence only and there would be no grounds for prosecution, so long as no criminal damage had been done and the individuals left when asked to do so. 

Anyone challenged in this way is asked to take a name and contact details so that the matter can be followed up by the BMC.
