Excellent climbing centre based in an old church. Boasts impressive rope walls and lead climbing. Brilliant staff and we'll worth a visit.

This is a great climbing wall and suitable for all ages and abilities. There is a great variety of routes, grades, angles as well as bouldering and a cafe. Well worth a visit.
