Rocktype Sandstone (hard)
Altitude 53m a.s.l
Small wall for bouldering at the entrance to the quarry.
Park at the end of Bradley Avenue or in the small layby on Hick's Common Road then follow a small path down between railroad and paddocks to walk underneath the impressive railway viaduct into the quarry.
Stormy Monday wall is located by walking past the main quarry a further 50m along the river on the same side.
Huckford Quarry is a designated nature reserve, with important plants and nesting birds (such as peregrines) on the main cliff. There is a small wall suitable for bouldering at the quarry entrance but do not climb on the walls in the back of the quarry. 1 route has been done here (Lost Worlds, e4 6b, O.Keynes) on a clean impressive arete at the back right of the quarry, excellent and mentioned now for historical purpose only.
Be respectful of the nature here. Keep group size small, noise down (NO STEREOS!!), dog on lead at all times, and clean chalk off when you leave.
