Bristol CC Outdoor Education Centre situated in the village of Parkend in The Forest of Dean

Monday 2 October 2023


 We had a busy Spring & Summer since our last Blog Update with lots more developments and successful Outdoor Learning Courses run at Deanfield

The big bathroom refurbishment on the 3rd floor has been well received by residential groups and in particular by the visiting staff members occupying Rm 31 who now have a lovely ensuite bathroom featuring large shower enclosure, heated mirror and towel rail and waterfall tap!
Presently we are busy building a new retaining wall alongside part of our stream. This is to protect the Low Ropes Course from possible flooding in the future, with climate change in mind.

Whilst working on the wall we decided it might be nice to incorporate a Well and a Pump! These are to get water from the stream for use on our nearby Low Ropes Course. We thought pumping water or drawing it from a well is not things that todays children are likely to have experienced. Once completed we will report it on this Blog.

We also have a new Circus Skills Workshop session that we can offer schools. This is undertaken in the Garden Room and facilitated by a film on the organisation and coaching of the session. See the following link:
