Sat-nav information

The postcode will take you to within 100 metres of the wall but on the main road; from the main road look out for signs for Mason’s Place Business Park and turn into the set of gates highest up the road (there is a slight incline so this will make sense upon arrival). Follow the road around the entry lane and The Climbing Unit is the large white and red unit directly in front of and next to Derby Brewing Company.

Driving over at peak times?
Driving east on the A52, follow the signs for Chaddesden/Spondon. Take the fourth exit off the roundabout, go past Asda, through Chaddesden and you’ll come across Mason’s Place on your left after the cemetery. This avoids tailbacks on the Pentagon Island – and could give you an extra 30 minutes climbing time!
