Come to Lockerbrook this Autumn!

Monday, 15 July 2019

Has your group been to Lockerbrook - one of our wonderful Woodcraft Folk centres?  If not you are in for a treat and if you have then you know how brilliant it is up here!  Lockerbrook is a former hill farm at 1200ft in the High Peaks with a stunning view overlooking the Ladybower reservoir.  It is a purpose built adventure activities centre with 38 beds.


Lockerbrook was created as a centre  by volunteers from Sheffield Woodcraft Folk in 1964 and over the years with support from Woodies all over the country. Its main aim has always been to enable groups of young people to come together for co-operative, adventurous experiences.  We have an AALA licence to deliver adventure activities including climbing, caving, abseiling, stream scrambling and much more. 

In 2018 we welcomed over 1500 people to the centre of whom just under 70% were young people and of those around 17% were Woodies.   In 2019 we want to see more Woodies coming to Lockerbrook and have set a target of 20% but of course would really like to exceed this!  

How your group can come to Lockerbrook

There are lots of ways for you to come to Lockerbrook.  You can either book a weekend or a few days midweek during school vacations.  As a WcF group you will get a discounted rate on our prices which include bedding.  We normallly hire out the centre on a sole use basis and charge a minimum amount based on 28 beds.   The other way to come is to join up with another group or come on one of our Activity Weekends for Pioneers and Venturers or special events such as the Weekend of Song in December. 

We've also put on 2 Small Groups Gathering weeks in the October half term if you would like to team up with another small Woodie group to share the costs of hiring out the Centre.
