The ultimate adrenaline rush. As seen in Bear Grylls Mission with Warwick Davis

We'll guide you on a 25 minute walk to the hidden gem of Cathedral Quarry - A disused Green Slate Quarry. Spend some time with us exploring the magnificent cavern and tunnels of Cathedral Quarry which is situated just outside the village of Coniston. Abseil 150ft down into depths of the quarry. Your abseil can start with a smaller one to get warmed up and then progress to the big one. Your fully qualified and experienced instructor will guide you down every step of the way.
