Bradwell Dale

Introduction:

The quarry is situated just out of Bradwell on the right-hand side of the road when travelling up the dale from Bradwell towards Tideswell. The main quarry gets the sun for the most part of the day although the lower tier routes stay in the shade all day.

Access:

The owner of the quarry is quite happy for people to climb there but has requested that people don't create a messs when removing loose rock and vegetation to garden routes and don't cut down any trees. He would also like climbers to contact him by text message onlyon 07531001990 beforehand so that he knows you are visiting there. Permission will normally be given.

Also, dueue to limited parking, it is best to park on the outskirts of the village and walk up the dale to the crags. After 400m up the road from the village ascend the ramp on the opposite side of the road to the second 50mph sign. Please DO Not park on the road by the cliff.

Structure:

the crag is composed of three sectors. The Lower Tier is the central section of crag reached from the parking place. The Upper Tier lies up and to the left of this, whilst the Ivy League is the bay of rock down and to the right with Ladybird wall up and to its left.
