Rock Climbing Centre Coming to Redbridge

Rock Climbing Centre coming to Redbridge Well, carabiner clips at the ready, we’re proposing to build a climbing centre in Newbury Park, where you’ll experience the adrenaline of scaling considerable heights, in complete safety.  
Climbing is now an officially recognised Olympic sport and will feature prominently in this years’ Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. As a sport, climbing is growing increasingly popular across the world, as well as across the UK. We want our centre to be one of the best in the country, and include beginner, intermediate and advanced climbing grades so that everyone can participate in this fun activity.  

We’re proposing to convert one of the existing buildings at the Ley Street depot into a climbing metropolis, with several climbing walls, roped climbing lines and bouldering walls. 

The centre will cater to climbing enthusiasts and beginners alike, and the walls will be regularly updated to offer a wide range of enjoyable and challenging climbing scenarios. We plan to award a construction contract in March. The winning contractor will then produce detailed designs for the centre and will apply for planning permission before building begins. We will update you on our exciting plans for this rock climbing centre in the heart of Redbridge. Watch this space!
