A real find! More details once fully developed by locals.
The owner has not given permission to climb in the quarry and anyone doing so will be trespassing.
A few inconsiderate climbers who were approaching the crag from above, across the landowner's garden and parking in his drive has resulted in the landowner asking the BMC to make clear that he does not give permission for access to the quarry.
The main issues which led to this were:
- Climbers topping out into the gardens at the top of the quarry instead of using the chain lower offs installed to prevent this from becoming an issue.
- Climbers trying to access the top of the quarry by climbing over the landowner's garden fence and walking through his garden
- Parking in the shared driveway next to the landowner's house at the top of the quarry, meaning that it cannot be used as a turning circle for the frequent large vehicles that drive up this road
