Have you ever wanted to abseil down a church tower? Well, this summer you can! By taking The Church Tower Challenge on 30th June and 1st July you can abseil down one of the finest church towers in the UK! Often described as a miniature cathedral, St.Lawrence’s Church in Crosby Ravensworth is known for its fine architecture, stained glass and interesting carvings. This is also a rare opportunity to look out over the Lyvennet valley at height.
Above all though, you can raise funds in aid of St.Lawrence’s organ restoration fund while abseiling down the front of the tower! You can either get yourself sponsored or you can just pay £10 a go.
In addition, there’s an open gardens event in the village of Crosby ravensworth on July 1st and there’ll be refreshments at the village hall.
