Abseiling is on a tower, from a platform 7m from the ground. Access is by a staircase. Ropes, harnesses, helmets and equipment are provided each session or you can use the tower with your own equipment (Two sessions can be run simultaneously).


Two instructors, who must hold the appropriate authorisation, are required for a group of up to 18 people per session. Two adults from your group are also required to help with harnesses and to supervise the children not on the activity.


This tower is approved for use by Girlguiding UK and GG Level 1 instructors are available.
