Northampton Lift Tower Abseil

Our new 2017 abseil will be taking place at the UK's tallest permanent abseil - The Northampton Lift Tower.

The abseil is a staggering 400 feet descent on the outside of the building - a difficult but exhilarating challenge! 

The National Lift Tower was originally built to test lifts, but now along with other resources such as health and safety equipment tests and emergency escape system tests, the tower hosts a permanent abseil that features 'The Big One' on the exterior of the building and also smaller abseils at 150-200 feet in the interior of the tower. 

Following the success of this event in 2016, we are looking to recruit up to 50 supporters to join us on the 2nd September 2017 to take 'The Big One' abseil challenge on together. Located in Northampton, with easy access from the M1 and only a 15 minute walk from the nearest train station - this unique abseil is ideal for our supporters across the UK.

How can you get involved?

deposit of £20 is required at the time of booking, and we require each participant to pledge to raise a minimum sponsorship of £199.
