Crag features

Deep Rake comprises two compact walls either side of the old quarry workings at the eastern end of Longstone Edge. 

Approach notes

Parking has become a problem. There is no room in the tiny village of Rowland and the landowner of the track higher up doesn't allow parking there. There is a tiny space just before the first cattle grid otherwise park on the main road between Hassop and Great Longstone by the Rowland turning and walk up the road from there. Continue past where the tarmac ends and a wide level track leads off to the right. Walk along the gravel track crossing a cattle grid then take the footpath on the right across the field. The quarry appears on your left in approx 400m.

As access is uncertain keep a low profile when entering and leaving the Rake.

Access Advice

Make sure you use the described parking and don't block anything. There is no agreed access here and you may be asked to leave.
