Abseiling practice

Yes this is local.

Passed through Carlops one day in about 1996 and saw these guys up on top of ‘The Rock’. I parked the car in the little carpark and went up aound the small path at the back and asked if they minded if I did a few pics. It turned out they were from Broomlee Camp just outside the village.

The wooden hut visible in the first picture is the old Carlops Village Hall.

Following a couple of instances in recent years of bits falling off onto vehicles, ‘The Rock’ has now been fenced off around the base beside the car park. This doesn’t affect access to the lowly top however.

Fenced off!
