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.

Winewall Quarry


Winewall lies just off the B6250 between Colne and Trawden. There are two quarries at the top of the hill at the end of the village and the climbs described (in the Lancasgire Rock supplement) are all on the west side of the road.

Crag information
Climbing Area: North West Rock Type: Gritstone
Importance: Local CRoW Land: No
Ownership: Unknown No. of Routes:
Within National Park: No Year Developed:
Grid Reference: SD912399

Numerous jackdaws nest on the crag. Although the BMC doesn't restrict climbing for these prolific birds who are very resilient to potential disturbance, it would be best ot avoid the crag whilst they are nesting to avoid attracting negative attention from local residents.

Parking and Approach

There is a small parking space by a gate and the village sign on the right after the last buildings. Follow a path behind the gate heading towards the far side of the quarry (resist the temptation to go directly down the banking – there is much hidden glass). Keep left at a large twin stemmed tree, then continue to The Vineyard.
