Crag features

Rocks are on private land and you must ask the landowner permission first. Please See below.

Sandstone outcrop near Tunbridge Wells. Care must be taken to ensure moving ropes do not come into contact with the soft rock.
Opposite the main venue of High Rocks is a hidden area just off the road leading back to Royal Tunbridge Wells. The Rock remains green for a majority of the winter time but in summer when hopefully it's much dryer, it's a favourite with Highballers and Boulderers.

Approach notes

Permission is needed from the owner who's bungalow can be found behind the out crop (this is the bungalow at the right-angle bend on Tea Garden Lane and is easy to drive to). If no one is in, please leave a note of how many of you there are and roughly what time you are climbing from and to.. They would rather they know who is at the rocks, and have allowed climbing if this is adered to. 

Restricted Access

Even though the outcrop is on Open Access land, the general local concensus is that climbers should still ask for permission to climb from the owner. Her bungalow is behind and above the outcrop – at the right-angled bend in Tea Garden Lane.

Access is sensitive due to issues around overcrowding and inconsiderate parking - please park responsibly and avoid parking on the roadside verges.
