The National Stone Centre is now working in partnership with the Institute of Quarrying who are recently co-located on the site. Over the coming years many site improvements are planned including the development of a new visitor centre.
The quarries have been brought together on UKC to give common access and approach notes.
Please read both the approach and access notes as well as the infomation for each of the quarries.
Descriptions for the new routes will be added...
Parking is in the main car park for the National Stone Centre which is signposted off Porter Lane. This parking is the closest access for Coal Hills and North East Quarry and a short downhill walk to Shaw and Colehill. The parking is pay and display and the payment goes directly to the National Stone Centre who have very kindly granted climbers access to their land. They use this income to fund improvements to the site which are already benefiting climbers. It would be best to support their work by paying the parking fee.
Alternative parking is available in Wirksworth Industrial Centre on Ravenstor Road close to the entrance of Colehill Quarry. This is best for Colehill and Shaw Quarry.
|Reminiscent of a sea cliff? Maybe needs reassessing as its cleaned up a lot recently.Good southern alternative to Horseshoe without the polish:)

|P.S. Routes are well bolted here. Bolts next to cruxes and no random run-outs. Which is nice.
