Lies off the Devon coast (and is officially part of Devon, but we think of it more as a place in its own right).
Info on rocktype, and crags, welcome.
For details on accommodation, sailing times of the ferry and camping, contact The Landmark Trust, Shottesbrooke, Maidenhead, Berks SL6 3SW or call 01628 825 925
Accommodation details can be obtained from the Landmark Trust (Tel: 01628 825925). Please check in as a climber with the Lundy Warden on arrival for up to date access information on extended or lifted climbing restrictions, recent rockfall etc. Letting the Landmark Trust know you are a climber when you book your ferry and accommodation doesn't get this information through to the warden so drop in and say hello when you arrive.
A number of rockfalls have affected several crags along the west coast in recent years – please see the CC guidebook supplement for details on what has been affected.
Please do not place any additional abseil/belay stakes or abseil slings without first gaining permission from the Lundy Warden. The approaches to all the cliffs on the island can be safeguarded with enough rope and common sense. This is essential to maintaining a continued good relationship with the Warden and the Landmark Trust.
Dates: 31 March to 15 September
Reason: Nesting Birds
Restrictions on Lundy fall into three categories:
- Unrestricted (year round access)
- Restricted from 31 March - 14 August
- Restricted from 31 March - 15 September
Page numbers refer to the first page of each crag from the CC Lundy (2008) guidebook.
Restrictions are continually monitored by the Lundy Warden and team, but if you see any nesting birds within unrestricted areas, please report to the Warden. If birds fledge early or sites fail, the affected restrictions will be lifted once the warden has confirmed that the site(s) are vacant. Likewise, occasionally nesting may start later in the season requiring extension to the restricted period - always check RAD and with the Warden on arrival for any updates to the restrictions.
Restricted 31 March - 14 August
Restricted 31 March - 15 September
These restrictions are subject to constant review and it is important that climbers contact the Warden for updates before your visit or on arrival to the Island.

|Toreador, thank you for cleaning this up. Last time I looked the page was a total mess, must have been a lot of work to get everything sorted!

|I agree, and then it could be broken into crag areas (as above). Its too unwieldy at the moment.

|Shouldn't this section be intergrated into the large "Lundy" section on UKC, rather than on its own?
