Welcome to Whitehough

We take education out of the classroom and into the great outdoors… And we make every experience one to remember!

Whitehough Outdoor Centre

Operated by Burnley FC in the Community, Whitehough Outdoor Centre is a 22-acre outdoor education facility nestled in the enchanting Pendle countryside.

Sleeping up to 64 on-site in dormitory-style rooms, we can accommodate both large and small groups. The site also includes two classrooms, a large dining room, an extensive camping field, a 40-seater conference suite and on-site activities.

Discover Our Activities

Our activities are delivered on both land and water by qualified Outdoor Elements instructors, approved with the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority. We believe young people can be inspired by outdoor education and we want all our visitors to thrive in this unique environment.

Survival Skills

Try your hand at building a shelter to protect you from the elements, light a fire without matches and maybe even have a go at making a cup of nettle tea.

Hill Walking

Pendle Hill is always a favourite route for a full-day hike! You can also opt for a shorter route over Stang Top to Black Moss or through Aitken Wood to see the sculpture trail.

Tree Climb

The two climbing trees have climbing holds on the trunk, giving climbers a choice of routes to get to the top.

Problem Solving

A selection of problems to solve using teamwork, communication and physical ability during tasks.

Where To Find Us

Though the activity centre feels a million miles from the hustle and bustle of a town or city, it’s actually only 10 minutes from the M65 motorway and 20 minutes from Burnley town centre on Barley New Road.
