Challenges to suit all abilities

 Burnbake ropes course: Brenscombe Outdoor Centre

Burnbake Ropes Course is a well-established, instructor-led ropes course in Rempstone Forest.

There are several separate sections, each comprising many elements which can be used as stand alone activities or combined:

  • Trees Course - the name says it all. This course is up in the trees; exciting on a breezy day.
  • Poles Course - Supported by poles rather than trees it combines seven different elements in one small area, allowing groups of up to 12 to move swiftly from one high challenge to the next.
  • Powerfan - a true test of nerve; developed to train paratroops, your heart will be in your mouth as you plummet earthwards before gliding to a gentle stop on the ground.
  • Low ropes course - extensive course, great to use in its own right or to prepare for elements at height.

Low Ropes - as the name implies these elements are all close to the ground, meaning that no safety ropes are involved, making it ideal for training and warm-up activities and teambuilding.

Climbing walls
