The Woods

A series of individual high ropes activities set amongst the riverside woodland in the grounds of Newlands. The Woods challenges require determination, trust, teamwork and empathy for successful completion by all participants.

After being fitted with a helmet and harness by your Instructor, you will be briefed on each individual challenge that you face. Can you scale to the top of the Lumber Ladder or zip across the Canyon Crossing? Will you succeed on the Causey Causeway or traverse the Rapid Walk? Are you able to swing from The Tarzan Swing or ring the alarm in the Bell Tower…?

There are many other thrilling challenges to face in the Woods and all will leave you looking forward to the next one.

Where to Meet?

Meet at Newlands Adventure Centre for this activity.
Stair, Keswick CA12 5UF
