Description 

Climbing in Lancashire in the northwest of England tends to be over-shadowed by Yorkshire and the Peak District, but there is some great climbing here on both gritstone and limestone. The best of the Lancashire quarries (Wilton, Trowbarrow, etc.) are excellent.

Getting There 

This is a big area, spreading from the southern rim of the Lake District in the North down to the border with Cheshire / Manchester in the south. Most crags are close to motorways (M6, M61, M65).
