SW facing limestone quarry on the other side of the main road from Stanhope Dean. The routes tend to be longer and generally harder than the dene.
Be aware of occasional rockfall from above!
Please do not park anywhere along the dene road. Park in Stanhope and walk up Church Lane to the right of the church. Turn left at the top. There is a small public footpath to the left of the Methodist Chapel heading North and uphill. Follow this through the gate and continue to the 2 bridges. The quarry is off to the left.
All sectors are on the map.
In September 2019 the landowner informed the BMC that he does not allow access for climbing and unfortunately attempts to negotiate access to the quarry were unsucessful. If you do decide to visit and are asked to leave, please be polite and leave as quickly as is safely possible.
