the view from the bridge
Hidden in a valley, that is also home to the Matlock Victorian Baths. The imposing Lime stone cliffs overlook the main road and district of Matlock Bath. Easily approached and full of good low grade limestone climbing and some harder test pieces. Most of this is on average a 2 pitch venue. With Classics like Golden Yardstick and Cataclysm.

Parking is convenient and easy to reach. The path is accessed by going around the back of the mining museum. Cross the most southern bridge turn right and follow the steps.

I think the GPS coords are the wrong way around in this. That is, it appears just off East Africa on the map... Also, is it easy/possible for an admin to move this area into "England" rather than being in the top level page?
