Outdoor Elements works on a mobile basis and depending on how far you would like to travel can offer team building and outdoor pursuits at various venues across Lancashire, the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, South & West Pennines, Ribble Valley and Greater Manchester.  Travelling from the centre in Simonstone there are abseiling venues in the Burnley area meaning abseiling could be linked with an activity at our outdoor activity centre.


Abseiling can be a great way to raise money by organising a sponsored event.  As well as the money raised these events can attract lots of attention from passers by and publicity through local news groups.
