Oxenhope Year 6 Visit Day 2

Today has been split between walking and Gill Scrambling – look away if you are of a nervous disposition!

There are opportunities for low level walks that still have expansive views of the Lake District direct from the front door of the hostel.

Then it’s off to Stickle Gill with Climb 365 instructors who always provide the children with a fun and challenging course up the Gill.

Today it was overflowing after overnight rain and the power of the water really was a sight to behold. The children enjoyed a gentle introduction in the lower sections before attempting to climb the waterfall half way up. I think the pictures speak for themselves!

This evening we go out after tea and look for bats – at dusk next to the river we are often treated to a real show. The rain was heavy this morning but during the day it has gradually brightened and if it holds off then there sure to be plenty of insects in the air for the bats to catch.
