News - December 2011


We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you, our wonderful customers, for your continued patience and support over what have been an exceptionally difficult time.


From September 2nd we have revised COVID restrictions. 


Face Coverings:

We encourage and support customers to wear masks around the centre but it is not compulsory anymore to wear them.

The reception team will not obliged to wear a mask anymore but the screen will still be in place around the reception area.

Coaches will still have to wear masks on coached sessions as well as groups with participants aged 9 and above


Centre capacities:

With the removal of the very specific capacities from government guidance we will be cautiously increasing our centre capacities by 10%

The Climbing Works – 105 to 116 (sign out still required)

The Mini Works – 45 to 50 (slot bookings)

Unit E – 45 to 50


Social distancing:

The government guidance from 19th July means that there are no legal limits on indoor group size, but we still strongly encourage you to socially distance (2m where possible!) from people you don’t have frequent contact with anyway.

It is important that you continue to respect the space of anyone you have not mutually agreed that you are happy to be closer to or do not know.



We will continue to manage these risks and monitor them closely. In the event of significant new evidence and government announcements we will revise these new policies and not hesitate to put restrictions back in place.


The Climbing Works Team


28 Dec 2011 Woodseats Road is still closed.

The work on the bridge at the bottom of Woodseats Rd is not finished - the bridge was due to re open today but work has been stopped due to the high winds.


We don't know when the road will be open again so you will need to look at alternative routes to get to The Works.


From Abbeydale Road the options are either:

- get onto Little London Road from Broadfield Road - accessed from the lights near the Broadie


- go down Langdale Road, which is opposite Carter Knowle Road, turn left at the end and then right onto Little London Road. Langdale Road is however a one way street so you can't get back to Abbeydale Road this way, you will have to go down Little London Road and back to the Broadie lights to get back onto Abbeydale Road.

We will keep you posted as to when the normal access is open.
