Ten Tors annual trip to the seaside

We were blessed with a dazzling day of sunshine but with biting winds for our trip to the South Cornish Coast. The teams clocked up an impressive mileage and height gain, and everyone enjoyed a ferry ride. Fantastic

Silver DofE go scrambling

A break from being indoor, we escaped into the unexpectedly fine afternoon for some scrambling and topped out for fine views on top of the Dewerstone.

Learning the ropes

The Second year students ran a superb day for the first year students. By the end of the day everyone could correctly don a harness, tie-in, belay and had the beginnings of an idea about movement skills. Well done folks 

Monday night's alright for walking

We were too early in the week for the Blue Super Moon, but we were treated to a magnificent fiery sky at sun set when we ventured onto the moor on Monday evening

Discoverers Club in Swildons Hole

A long but thoroughly worthwhile day out yesterday for the Discoverers Club. We headed to Mendip and explored the entrance series of Swildons Hole. It was a touch wetter that we anticipated so rather than heading to the abseil we left the stream way and climbed up and around the dry routes. Superb effort, particularly by those who had not been caving before!

Silver DofE go biking

On Friday one of the DofE teams got to know each other much better when we went for a blast around the trails at Plym Bridge. It turned out that it was't too muddy.
