Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2016 from everyone at Derwent Hill

It’s been another great year at Derwent Hill with thousands of young people benefitting from an Outdoor Education residential.  We want to say a big THANK YOU to all the hard working teachers who organised the courses and brought the young people away.

It’s also been a busy year in the Training Centre with lots of courses from Nissan Motor manufacturing along with new clients such as Hitachi Rail Europe.

Our summer family holidays were as successful as ever and it was great to see guests old and new!

The Educational Visits Advisory Service (EVAS) continues to grow and we are now providing advice and training for schools, academies and authorities outside Sunderland.

We certainly love getting out and about on the hills and mountains of the Lake District and Christmas is the time that many families and individuals take the opportunity to get out and explore. If you are new to hillwalking check out this great introductory leaflet from the BMC. BMC New Hillwalkers Leaflet

The BMC also provides great winter hill walking advice for more more experienced hill walkers. Winter Hillwalking Advice
