After weeks of waiting, the hoarding's come down, the paint has dried and the setters have done their thing.  The Comp Wall, replacing the featured wall by the cafe, opened on Monday the 8th of April. Offering the full-range of climbing- slab, steep and roof- our newest area has been very popular.

Coming soon will be a fun tunnel area next to the cafe for kids (and adults) to explore!

An opportunity to be part of our lively reception team at The Castle has arisen.

We are looking for a receptionist to work on our busy front desk between 12 and 16 hours a week - evenings and weekends.

A friendly open manner, enthusiastic attitude towards excellent customer service and a high standard of written and spoken English is essential. The ideal candidate should be computer literate and have previous experience in customer facing roles.

An interest in climbing and sustainability is an advantage.

Duties include:

Climbing winter routes in the UK has given me some of my most memorable and enjoyable days out climbing, however being based in London means I like to make sure that routes are ‘in’ before I make the long and expensive drive north.  Fortunately in recent years this has become a lot easier because of the great resources available on the internet. I have put together some of those resources that I have found to be invaluable.

Work with the Castle garden team, learn to manage a productive and fun food growing project and grow, vegetables, fruit and herbs for a commercial kitchen and café.

Since September 2009, The Castle have been working to develop the one acre green space surrounding the building. This has been an exciting project with the vision to create a productive garden based on the principles of permaculture design.  We grow fruit, vegetables and herbs for the Castle kitchen and café , plus producing herb products, such as lip balm, for our shop.

After 5 minutes of me talking, she turned to me and asked, "Are you talking about pens? Pens, as in the things we write with?"

Yes I am… and I am also aware of the fact that this may seem to be going overboard for buying pens. Part of my job here at The Castle (among other things, thankfully) is purchasing bulk orders of items that we use on a daily basis. There was a time when it took a very short amount of time and all I had to worry about was how much it cost in £’s. Over the last few years, things have changed around here (for the better).
