Wrights Rock access
July 14, 2021, 06:41:39 pm
There have been some issues here recently I picked up on Facebook.

There are new landowners who have recently moved into Wood farm and signs saying Private Woodland, no right of way which had been put up around Wright’s Rock and in the field below.

Following a meeting with the BMC Access Rep (AndiT) the landowners are happy for climbing to continue BUT have raised (reasonable) concerns.

The BMC RAD has been updated as below:

https://www.thebmc.co.uk/modules/RAD/View.aspx?id=5412

Access to this crag is dependant (sic) on climbers maintaining a low profile and adopting a strict leave no trace ethos, In addition, make sure you follow these few simple rules:

Only use the gate to cross the fence and access the crag

No dogs - dogs have worried livestock and if this happens again, climbing access could be banned

Daytime access only - no climbing after dusk

Minimise noise - stay low profile

Keep group sizes small - this isn't a venue for large groups



Spread the word

Bumped into a couple of nice lads at the Rambler's Retreat car park last week who had been at Wright's and spoken with the new landlord who was fine but very clear that groups of any more than 6 people would be moved on...

(As an aside, I got me one of those nice Tie Dyed vests and am very pleased with it!)

Good work, hopefully that update can get RADed and onwards trickle down to UKC.
No comment.
