Stoke Lane Slocker
« on: August 07, 2017, 07:13:37 pm »
Whilst parking on the lane on Sunday 6th August we were approached by the private security for the quarry stating that there is no permission to access the cave and to park on the road. The lay-bys are now filled with mud and its very difficult to park.

Just an FYI

That is a shame... Hopefully the security guards are just there for the summer holidays ?

There appear to be several footpaths right past the cave so they surely cannot deny access to these...

Max is right - there is a footpath going down the valley right past the stream sink entrance and the field is owned by Stoke Bottom Farm.  I understand that the farmer does not give permission to enter the cave.  I think that it is a different outfit who own Cook's Wood Quarry that is being developed for a holiday complex and there's also Holcombe Quarry where the local scrotes go tombstoning.  Not being able to park on Bector lane is no bad thing if you value your car.

The cave isn't gated.. just park near the weighbridge tidily then follow the footpath from Stoke bottom farm.
There are no access restrictions.
