COVID-19

As the Covid-19 lockdown eases, access for climbing is opening back up, subject to some measures and restrictions depending on where you are going. Please make sure you have read and understood our current advice before heading out and apply it alongside RAD advice to ensure access issues don’t develop.

Bassett's Farm Rocks

Southern Sandstone

User attention

With immediate effect, we are kindly asking all climbers to refrain from climbing at the outcrop Bassett’s Farm.

Due to overcrowding and large numbers at the venue it has created concerns from the landowners and residents regarding parking issues and access. Climbers have been venturing away from the designated climbing crag and footpath, which is also not permitted.

Bassett’s Farm is a much loved, albeit small crag, with limited climbing and parking, and we want to avoid future access issues or loss of access. We have always been grateful to the landowners for their tolerance of the small number of visiting climbers each year.

Please do not climb at this venue until further notice to help alleviate this issue during COVID restrictions.

Your support is greatly appreciated to help maintain access to Sandstone outcrops in the south-east
