Bowden Doors is in Chatton, Alnwick in Northumberland.

This is a sandstone crag with climbs which go up to 15 metres, covering of all grades, but mostly technical. It is quick drying and mostly good to climb all year round, but can be brittle when wet so avoid climbing until it dries. At the northern end, the rock overhangs like a wave.
