Crag features

Disused group of quarries at the top of Ham Woods valley,comprising of Ham Woods Quarry,Windsor Hill Quarry and the now filled in Downside Quarry.The routes here are mostly loose but some interesting lines are appearing.

Approach notes

The crag is on a public footpath so no known access problems.There is parking for two cars in a small lay-by at the top of the bridle path that comes up from Bowlish.Follow the public footpath across the field opposite then down into the valley through a kissing gate.The Left Wing appears on your left with the obvious crack of "Kabloom" in the centre.Follow the path and the routes on "The Prow" are above you then emerge into the cove-like main crag with the Somerset wall at the left and Dorset Wall on the right.The crag then degenerates into minor loose buttresses

This is Ham Wood Quarry. Windsor Hill Quarry itself is to the east, is on private land and is a geological SSSI.
