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.
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.
A great team activity where you work together to see who can reach the highest rung on this giant ladder.
Canoeing sessions take place on the Leeds and Liverpool canal, using open Canadian canoes.
Learn how to hold the bow, shoot arrows into our targets and score points to compete with your teammates.
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.
