Climbing Sites Under Threat

Access to Craig-y- Longridge is currently under threat due to a change in ownership and planned development of the site. The BMC is corresponding with the land agent for the new owner in an attempt to re-establish informal access for climbers to this great North West venue. In the Peak District the owner of Willersley Crag is attempting to ban climbing. The situation appears to have arisen over some mis-information and confusion. Local BMC access reps and the Peak Area Chair are busy trying to regain access to this popular crag.
