About Anglezarke Quarry (OS):

Although the rock here is called flagstone, it is like gritstone in character. A very good crag with some excellent routes, at least 150 lines up to 70 feet long, and many boulder problems. The rock is good, but tends to deteriorate near the top. Climbs in all grades, well worth a visit.

7 miles WNW of Bolton. From the Horwich roundabout on the A673 at the north end of town follow the road north and make an immediate turn right up the small road to Rivington. After about 2 miles at the T-junction turn right and follow the small road up and around, and it will come back down to a reservoir in about 2 miles. Continue to a sharp right bend up a hill and the crag will be on your right.
