Any profit from the shop goes into purchasing educational items for the centre , thus benefiting the students directly.

Located in the hallway of Blue Peris for student use. Course leaders may regulate use of this if they feel the need to. White Peris users will make use of this with liaison with centre staff.

Car Park

The centre has adequate on site parking, the exception being when we have large adult course in residence. In this instance extra parking is located only minutes away from the centre.

Disability

We encourage all groups to visit and experience what the centre has to offer. We ask that all course leaders who have group members with any kind a disability to contact the centre beforehand/in the booking process so we can discuss the individual requirements. We regularly have groups with disabilities. However, the centre, due its old design and location is not 100% designed for the full range of disabilities; therefore a discussion will help us to understand and best address your requirements fully.

The centre has an extensive equipment stores for both land and water activities. We issue all specialist equipment for all our activities and courses. Equipment available for issue to students for personal use are: Rucksack, Balaclava, Waterproof Top and Bottoms, Fleece jumper, wellies and mountain boots.
