Now home to the cafe and the tall walls, this floor didn’t actually exist until we developed the climbing centre. The building takes its name from the six engines housed here. These were so big that the engine house had to be constructed around them.
This area has recently been re-developed to give us extra lead lines and a world class competition bouldering wall. But it’s not all hard core- we also have some lovely top rope slabs and vertical walls. A new staircase is currently being constructed that stretches from the bowels of the Castle right up to the new bouldering level on Floor 3.
The cafe provides Barista style coffee, home-made cakes, snacks, sandwiches and hot meals. All of our food is organic or sustainably sourced and a fair amount of fresh produce comes straight from our very own permaculture garden and is prepared in our kitchen on-site.
