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.
Canoeing sessions take place on the Leeds and Liverpool canal, using open Canadian canoes.
The two climbing trees have climbing holds on the trunk, giving climbers a choice of routes to get to the top.
Learn how to hold the bow, shoot arrows into our targets and score points to compete with your teammates.
This low-level obstacle offers a series of sections to test your balance, confidence and communication 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.
This activity is a super sensory experience – can you find your way around the course wearing a blindfold?
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.
