Calvert Trust

UK’s first wheelchair accessible high ropes course here in Cumbria

On the shores of Bassenthwaite, in the natural sloping woods, a UK first has arrived. The Lake District Calvert Trusthas opened a brand-new wheelchair accessible activity; a high ropes course.

Using horizontal ropes and obstacles, wheelchair users can now experience a new challenging outdoor adventure taking them to a maximum height of 10 meters above the ground. Built using a series of trees as the main supports, this unique and specialist facility is 100 meters long and stretches across eight platforms, with seven separate challenges.

Calvert Trust
Thought to be the only one of its kind in the UK the course was designed and developed by adventure specialist Technical Outdoor Solutions
.

With this unique high ropes course now up and running, it will be incorporated into The Calvert Trust’s existing activities programme which includes sailing, canoeing, horse-riding and abseiling.
