The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) has announced its success in buying a woodland climbing site, which it wants to manage in a way that enhances the experience for those bringing their climbing ropes.
Harrison Rocks in Kent has now been bought by the BMC and it has drawn up a woodland plan with the help of a couple of tree experts to manage the site, which will include conserving the arboreal and cliff environments for users.
It is now seeking the views of BMC members on the plan it has devised to meet these aims, which it wants users of the locality to help amend or approve.
People who like to get out with their climbing shoes
may wish to take part in the consultation.
Harrison Rocks was featured on the BBC Countryfile programme in September this year when presenter Matt Baker put on his climbing harness
and took on the challenge.
