Parking Controls to be introduced at The Castle
Parking has always been a bit of an issue at The Castle, there’s just not enough of it! In the past we’ve tried our best to gain access to some of Thames Water’s land parking but both compounds need 24 hour service access with large vehicles so that’s not an option.
The Castle is looking for enthusiastic, flexible people to join our Duty Managing team.
Duty Managers have responsibility for the operation of the centre during opening hours and act as the designated First Aider when the centre is open. They provide a reference point for all the day’s activities for both staff and customers; they ensure that safety procedures are followed and they provide a friendly, efficient service for our customers while supporting the staff in the centre working in their specialist roles.

At the moment we are still in discussions with the designers and to be able to direct the refurbishments in the way we would like we would really some input from you ladies as you're the ones who will benefit from the improvements.
On Saturday 2nd July the castle hosted the Young Guns Summer Comp; a bouldering comp for 9-14 year olds, including a professional finals format. Here are some of the photos of the day courtesy of Ben Grubb.
If you ask your non-climbing friends whether they’re sporty, quite often it’ll be mainly men who put their hands up. From the women, you’re more likely to hear “I’m no good at sport” to “I’m just not interested.” This gender difference is marked.
Research carried out by Sport England revealed that two million fewer women than men are active. However, 75 percent of those women said they want to do more sport.
