About Winmarleigh Hall

 Located near the Forest of Bowland, Winmarleigh is popular with secondary schools in the north west of England. Watch your students build confidence as they leap for the trapeze bar, discover the natural leaders in a raft building challenge and see the quieter students come out of themselves as they brave the giant swing!

There are some fantastic adventure activities to enjoy on land and water and some great facilities including floodlit activity areas, sports pitches, games rooms and plenty of classroom space.
