Bookings are now closed! Good luck to all of our abseilers.

Why just gaze up at one of Herefordshire’s most iconic buildings – when you can abseil down it?


Join us at Eastnor Castle on Sunday 7th August when ten of our lucky fundraisers will descend 100-feet down the castle’s north turret.

Whilst making the adrenaline-driving drop, you’ll be able to take in the breath-taking panoramic views of the Malvern Hills – there is no better and unique way to see this beautiful landscape where Herefordshire and Worcestershire meet.

You’ll receive a full safety briefing from our expert instructors before starting your challenge with a steep ladder climb to ascend to the top of the north tower. Then, braving the edge you’ll take in the views and make your way down the exhilarating drop.

o

We have just ten spaces available for this abseil (minimum age 14).

We only ask those taking part to raise at least £100 in sponsorship for St Michael’s.

REAL STORIES

“I loved it!!”

“When Mum told me I could have a go at abseiling, I couldn’t wait!

Many of my relatives and friends from school kindly sponsored me.

It was a bit high when I got there, but the instructor was great fun and made me laugh and feel safe. Once I was over the edge, it was amazing! I felt like Spiderman.

I’m definitely going to do it again.”
