On behalf of Wigan Council we manage the two Lake District Outdoor Education centres, Low Bank Ground and Hinning House.

The centres’ qualified and experienced teaching staff offer schools and colleges exciting outdoor courses using dramatic and inspiring natural environments.

We also provide training and activity courses for adults and family groups and special interest holidays. Priority is given to Wigan Council schools but there are usually dates available for other groups too.

Low Bank Ground is situated on the shore of the beautiful Coniston Water and is the perfect base for all outdoor activities with easy access to the lake and the Coniston Fells.

Hinning House is a purpose-built outdoor centre in the beautiful Duddon Valley, close to Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain.
