Found this on the back of an old sports centre. The ledges are about 12m off the ground.

Think i recognise this place used to train there in the early 1980,s with amongst others Pete Oxley. Is this by any chance near Bournemouth? forget where exactley could have been Ferndown?

Chepstow Secondary school had the same kind of thing, open to the public, but nothing like as fancy!

Hi, It is on the side of the Farnborough Leisure Centre, right in the middle of Farnborough. Should be preserved as a historical sporting monument. There can't be that many of this era left.

There was an Outside Wall at Bulmershe Teachers Training College, much used by members of The Reading Mountaineering Club in the 1970s and 80s. The college Gym was near it as well. Long since demolished and now housing.

I used to live there and I climbed on that wall in the mid 80's. It's a shame the lower holds have been filled in and the bolts chopped but I suppose they don't want anyone climbing on it.
