Thornbridge Outdoors

Thornbridge Outdoors is Sheffield's Outdoor Education Centre. Providing a range of outdoor activity, education and environmental development opportunities for school and youth groups, Thornbridge used to be part of Thornbridge Hall. The 19th century sections remain Grade 2 listed and the centre is now split into three distinct facilities: the Farm, the Lodge, and the fully equipped campers' block. During courses, you get exclusive use of either the Lodge or the Farm, including the accommodation, refurbished showers, kitchen and classrooms.

Located in the White Peak area of Derbyshire, Thornbridge provides a great range of riding including the Monsal Trail (which has an old station at Thornbridge) and the classic routes around Ladybower and Edale. The extensive site includes low and high ropes courses, a climbing boulder and a couple of mountain bike routes.

Being based in Derbyshire, Thornbridge is equally accessible from the east and west of the UK.
