Northampton Lift Tower Abseil


07th September 2019



Now in its fourth year, our abseil will be taking place at the UK's tallest permanent abseil - The Northampton Lift Tower.

  • Date: September 7 2019
  • Times: From 9am
  • Location: National Lift Tower, Northampton
  • Cost of entry: £20
  • Fundraising target: £199

Entry details:

The abseil is a staggering 400 feet descent on the outside of the building - a difficult but exhilarating challenge! 

The National Lift Tower was originally built to test lifts, but now along with other resources such as health and safety equipment tests and emergency escape system tests, the tower hosts a permanent abseil that features 'The Big One' on the exterior of the building and also smaller abseils at 150-200 feet in the interior of the tower. 

Following the success of this event in the recent years, we are looking for new recruits for 7th September 2019 to take 'The Big One' abseil challenge on together. Located in Northampton, with easy access from the M1 and only a 15 minute walk from the nearest train station - this unique abseil is ideal for our supporters across the UK.

Charity places are now sold out!

"I had such a fantastic time at this event, conquering my fear of heights and raising money for a charity close to my heart!"
