Altitude 104m a.s.l
An abandoned quarry, now a sculpture park consisting of many boulders with unrecorded problems and a few hidden rock faces. Notice boards with maps at the entrances should help identify the various sectors. A stone circle, named Porthenge by locals has been erected at the northern entrance to the quarry and has numerous recorded problems. These boulders are named after signs of the Zodiac working clockwise (left-to-right) to enable finding routes.
From the top of the hill on Portland turn right at the roundabout into Wide Street. After about 300m turn right and follow the road to it's end where access and parking for the quarry is gained.
No problems have occured with climbers bouldering on the stone circle but it is probably best to do this at quiet times and keep a low profile. The same advice applies if bouldering on any sculptured features within the quarry.
