Harmers Wood Parking

 mark hounslea 18 May 2020

It is good to see climbers coming out of lockdown heeding advice and staying local. However this may be causing a problem with access to Harmer's Wood. Parking is very limited and over the last few days folk have been parking on the road and this is concerning local residents who have been very supportive to climbing and who own and manage the woodland.

If the parking spaces are full, consider going elsewhere. Perhaps park at Helsby quarry and walk over to Harmers sampling the delights of Long Buttress and the Upper Tier on the way?

cheers

Perhaps worth a quick post on FB "friends of Pex" Mark? Was also mentioned at NW area meet last night. I've checked out the info on BMC RAD and this wasn't covered there, so I've added a comment to RAD to get them to change the guidance. Cheers. Paul
