About the area

Black Rocks is a weathered outcrop of Ashover gritstone and is a popular walking and climbing area offering superb views. It has an attractive circuit of walks through adjoining woods, provided in cooperation with the Forestry Commission. 

Around 6,000 vehicles use the car park per year but most visitors arrive on foot.

Public toilets are available at the site.

What's available

We have a room to let inside the visitor centre building adjoining the toilet block in the car park. The room measures around 18 square metres, has water, light and power.

The space would be let by competitive tender for a period of three years − with the potential for a one year extension − and subject to a commercial licence. The successful licensee would be responsible for fitting out the room. The potential to operate from a mobile unit would also be considered.
