Lordís Rake
« on: 22:09:29, 04/05/19 »
Does anybody know what the status of Lordís Rake is at the moment? I went up in 2017 and it was fine. Somebody told me today it was closed again, and that there was even tape across the entrance. Is that true? I havenít heard that there have been any new rock falls!

I can't answer your question, I'm afraid, but is it even possible to 'close' Lord's Rake?

Well, for several years after a rock fall, it was not recommended and most people accepted that it was effectively off limits. Then about three years ago a big chock stone came down and since then it has been ďopenĒ. Yesterday I was told by somebody that it was closed and there was tape across the entrance. I thought that was pretty strange, but then this person also claimed he went DOWN Broad Stand from Mickledore, so Iím not sure how much he knows about the area! 🤣

That person must have a good head for heights!


But how can he go down Broad Stand from Mickledore?

Normally it is possible to have rights of way suspended but I'm not sure that is possible on open access land.

If you did go up when you had to go under the chock stone you were not lonely.
