Charity Abseil: Langley Castle
5th June 2021 @ 10:00 am - 6th June 2021 @ 6:30 pm£36.50
Channelling the spirit of medieval foes and Border Reivers, up to 220 people will be scaling the centuries-old walls (dating back to 1350), of Langley Castle Hotel, near Haydon Bridge, Northumberland on June 5-6, to raise money for Maggie’s cancer care, Newcastle.
The super-resilient castle, which has withstood all that the centuries, fire and the treason of two of its owners have thrown at it, will now be allowing more remarkable people to do remarkable things, following a first abseil event in September 2020.
This abseil is unlike any other, given the fact that these are 671-year-old walls and the drop (90 feet) is extraordinary It thrilled everyone from those in wheelchairs and in cancer recovery to 10-year-olds, when the first batch of intrepid wall-scalers were in action.
if you wish to channel your inner Robin Hood or Border Reiver, you can sign up for the abseil at https://bit.ly/3eUwp96
Entry into the event costs £36.50 for registration and should give lots of scope for fundraising.
