Facilities at The Lock


The Lock offers a good range of climbing options; from beginners to aspirant athletes and everyone in between.

The lock boasts 120+ top rope and lead routes with a wide range of grades to test everyone. With 4 auto belays, a dedicated training area, a small bouldering loft containing 30+ blocs with grades ranging from VB-V5+ and even a small outdoor ‘featured’ wall available for those sunny summer evenings, there really is no excuse not to climb!


There is a small café here at The Lock offering hot and cold drinks, a selection of snacks and a range of sandwiches and wraps. You are also welcome to bring your own food to consume on-site and we have some outside picnic benches available to use.


We have a small shop with the vitals for climbing. Chalk, sling, rope? Pick it up in the shop. Our qualified staff are more than happy to ‘chat kit’ and offer advice on the next shiny thing to buy!


The Centre offers limited parking, however there is a large free carpark nearby at The Moorhen Pub. Please be considerate to our neighbours and do not park in residential bays or on the road outside the centre (Most of the roads have double yellow lines or are clearways, which could result in a parking ticket)
