- Climbing Wall and Abseil Tower Adventurous visitors can hire our purpose-built 40ft tower with an exciting 36ft abseil drop. For groups wanting to use it, we insist on safety equipment and an instructor with a current climbing and abseil certificate. If you don’t have your access to these things, contact us and we may be able to arrange something. It’s a long-way down, though, so if you want to use our tower, we will insist on safety helmets! 2018 Charges – £10 per hr for facility, £10 for equipment and £10 for instructor.

Nature and Wildlife
Our unique location provides home and shelter for some fantastic wildlife. Owls and raptors are regular visitors and we sometimes see occasional deer on the camp boundary. The main flora onsite is silver-birch, oak and holly. Fallen material is ideal for building bivouacs and bashers in some of the wilder areas. But please take care to only use fallen material, as the damage and felling of trees is not permitted.
