Hoghton Quarry is probably one of the best gritstone quarries in the north of England. It would certainly not look out of place next to Millstone Edge. However, in recent years, restricted access has meant that it is rather overgrown in places. That said, it is well worth a visit. Slabs, walls and roofs abound and there are still a couple of obvious aid routes knocking around, complete with ancient aid tat. The whole experience is wrapped up in a hidden venue which would probably be quite familiar to Robin Hood. Williness to clean a route and a keen sense of adventure are required by this crag, but those who persist will be totally rewarded.
