Fairlop Waters  Country Park and Leisure Facility

 

 

 

 

History
The project was conceived by the London Borough of Redbridge in 2009, and funded by the London Mayor's Priority Parks Programme. Rockworks was selected to build the boulders which were completed in June 2010.

Situation and Character
The boulders are situated in a leafy glade close to the main lake at Fairlop Waters. They offer sunny aspects and welcome shade throughout the day in a very pleasant location.

Access and Approaches
Fairlop Waters can be easily accessed from Forest Road, and is only a 5 minute walk from Fairlop Tube Station.

The Climbs
The Boulder Park consists of nine boulders of varying heights and shapes to cater for all standards from novice to expert. They are all designed for solo climbing. The easiest climbs will be found on boulders G,H & I. The higher boulders A,B,C & E all have thread belays for climbers who would like to use a top rope. Full details of the climbing can be found in the Fairlop Waters MiniGuide Acrobat Reader Required (www.adobe.com).
