It may be a sunny scorcher out there, but nothing is going to stop work continuing apace on improving Barnstondale Centre.
With 3 days work done already and 2 more to go, the improvements to the access path to the legendary Barnstondale climbing wall are looking great! The new wood linings will certainly add to the character of the woodland location of the climbing wall, as well as conserving it.
