Nesscliffe Hill Country Park
Nesscliffe Hill is a sandstone escarpment & is now a country park with various footpaths through the woods.
To the north of the hill the ramparts of an old hill fort are present. An old sandstone quarry face forms a spectacular cliff, popular for rock climbing. Cut into the cliff face is a cave reputedly the hideaway of the highwayman Humphrey Kynaston & his horse.
It is also the latest Countryside Site to have its own permanent orienteering course
