Welcome to Whitehough

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

80 YEARS OF WHITEHOUGH

We are celebrating 80 years of our historic outdoor centre which is nestled in the enchanting Pendle countryside.

You can help us celebrate by sharing any memories or photos you may have from visiting or working on the site over the years, to create a memorable exhibition at the centre.

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.

Leap of Faith

Climb up the pole to the platform then take the leap, reach out and hit the suspended ball.

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.

Builds Confidence

A great team activity where you work together to see who can reach the highest rung on this giant ladder.

Rock Climbing and Abseiling

This offsite activity allows groups to experience climbing on a rock face at Noggarth Quarry, which is a short distance from the Centre.

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.
