Brocton quarry is probably not worth traveling a great distance for, but it is a nice little training location for local climbers. Landings are perfect, so you might want to leave the pad at home and combine a trip here with a ride or walk on Cannock Chase.
Update 27/02/2012 - There has been a report that much of the overhang has broken away. I guess it was bound to happen eventually! Very little worthwhile climbing remains.
Update 07/03/2021 - After a decade of weathering, the overhang is now climbable again. Please take care.
The location shown on the map is accurate and someone has added some crag photos showing where to go. Note that it is the old sandstone quarry and not the sand and gravel pit.
