We are fortunate that the local
High School has both an indoor and an outdoor climbing wall.
This runs a weekly open session on Wednesdays during term time.
Our nearest local real rock is Southern
Sandstone which we get to when we can.
In Summer 2002 and 2004 we had family holidays in the Peak District,
which gave Hannah, Ben and Sarah their first taste of gritstone
climbing. We are far from being brilliant climbers, but
we enjoy ourselves. Below are some pictures of where we have been.
