Looking for dry tooling crags in England/Wales, including chalk climbing.

Any suggestions? I've seen there is somewhere in the Peak District and a chalk quarry in Cambridgeshire. For the other chalk venues it's hard to find up to date details on the access rights.

Stuff that can be top roped is preferable.

Thanks!

East Kent chalk cliffs are still generally acceptable, but only in winter, to avoid raining rock onto beachgoers. Don't forget to call the coastguard just before you start, and just after you finish.

Just seen this at Winspit, Dorset:

A Different Game (M10)

You rig it with a rope and use a tether like a via ferrata!

The chalk at Saltdean in Sussex. Referring to the above post, the stuff in Kent isn't suited to dry tooling (it's closer to an ice climbing style, using warthog protection primarily). Never seen any beach goers at Saltdean, but the idea is to use the pre-existing placements anyway, so there shouldn't be blocks raining down.
