The famous Wilton quarries in Lancashire are to be sold at public auction by their owners, United Utilities.
The quarries were originally scheduled for sale at auction last year, but they were withdrawn from sale after the BMC met with United Utilities property division to explain their significance to Lancashire climbers.
However, it now transpires that senior United Utilities staff have made the decision to sell up and the site will go under the hammer in October.
You can be sure the BMC will represent climber's wishes in this development.
Keep an eye on the BMC Website for breaking news.
