Abseiling on rock in our quarry.
The beauty of this zip wire is that it starts and finishes at ground level in the quarry.
This is a brilliant activity to take responsibility for yourself and support other people.
One of only three in the country, our Via Ferrata traverses the inside of the quarry on steel staples and a number of high ropes elements.
This is a 2 ½ hour session and normally takes the whole morning or afternoon. It can also be booked in the evening in the summer months. It is a fantastic way to push yourself and take responsibility for your own safety on this challenging activity.

A traditional vessel, a coracle is like a round canoe. Can you master moving forward in a straight line?
An excellent team building activity. Work together to build a vessel that will stay afloat when you put it on the water.
This is a Water Safety session. During this fun and very practical session we will look at how to keep yourself safe and how to manage the rescue of someone who is having difficulty in water. Why not link this session before or after a Coracles or Raft Building session?
Badge Link: For Scouts…
Scouts can work towards their Lifesaver Activity Badge. The ‘Throw Line Masterclass’ activity session covers many of the criteria in the Lifesaver Activity Badge.
Many of our activities link to badges and awards of different youth organisations. Here are some examples for members of Scouting:
Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Explorers can collect Time on the Water staged badges when you take part in Coracles, Raft Building and Kayaking. For Beavers, each session should last about one hour, for Cubs, 1-2 hours and for Scouts and Explorers each session should last about 2-3 hours.
Cubs can gain the Water Activities Badge by first explaining the safety rules for all water activities, then taking part in a Coracles and Raft Building session.
Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Explorers can gain Nautical Skills badges. To gain Stage 1 you need to take part in a water activity taster session like coracles or raft building; correctly identify the different equipment used for the activity you chose; and gain an understanding of the safety equipment used.
