Stone Farm Rocks
Stone Farm Rocks are a series of Tunbridge Wells sandstone crags and a Site of Special Scientific Interest (under the name Stone Hill Rocks) in the county of West Sussex. The site consists of 8 metres high sandstone crags. The crags reveal sedimentary structures which are used to examine the deposition of minerals in relation to water depths, direction and strength.
The site is owned by the British Mountaineering Council who run it for the benefit of climbers. There are 74 identified climbs on the rocks. Bolt belays have been installed at the top of many of the climbs to reduce erosion of the site.
