Cardwell Quarry.

[For an important update please refer to July post —-]

Spent a couple of days cleaning up this crag. It gets plenty of visits, but nobody pulls out the odd fern.  With all the wet weather the right-hand corner is dripping though the rest of the crag is dry.

For a summer’s evening, this location has one of the best views in Lancashire over Chipping Vale.

Sunset from Cardwell.

 Notice all the standing water in the fields from recent deluges, it’s Chipping Show this next weekend so hopefully, things will dry up.

For details of the routes go to the BMC guide – Lancashire [1999] or UKC  database at

    I have been doing a few walks locally of the farmer’s field, public footpath, variety and have found the ground much drier.

    That’s am impressive shot of you soloing, especially when enlarged. TAKE CARE.
