Located west of St Paul's Church on Rusthall Common and about a mile west of Tunbridge Wells is Happy Valley, which is situated on Commons Land. The crag is small in size and consists of some low main walls which are good for bouldering. The rock dries quickly here and is a good venue for most abilities.  Some rock can be sandy in places so take extra care. The best time to visit can be throughout the year when dry, but be mindful that it can quickly become overgrown in the Spring and Summer.  Parking is roadside near St Paul's Church.

Access Issues - The tree above Cheeswring Rock has been removed. Bolts have been placed illegally without the agreement of the Tunbridge Wells Common Conservators (TWCC). In consultation with the BMC, the TWCC have accepted that the bolts should remain on the Cheesewring Rock. The bolts are ‘thought’ to be safe but climbers should use the bolts at their own risk. It is suggested that the bolts are linked using a length of rope as a backup.

Due to the rock having only a thin outer layer, the rock is very fragile and can only be soloed or top-roped. Lead climbing is prohibited and placing trad gear would easily rip out and damage the rock. There is a CODE OF PRACTICE for climbers that should be read before climbing and setting up top-ropes.
