Millers Dale Viaduct Abseiling Day, A Success

Aspire Adventure Activities were booked to provide abseiling at Millers Dale Viaduct by Nick Beck for Matt stag party on the 27 April 2018.

The day dawned cold and wet but on meeting the group at Millers Dale car park they were well kitted out and enthusiastic although Matt who was only told of the activity on the day was a bit apprehensive as he was not a  great lover of heights.

After kitting the group out with ropes, harnesses and helmets and getting volunteers to carry equipment, we set out for the abseil site, after a 10-minute walk we arrived at Millers Dale Viaduct, Derbyshire. Matt went slightly quiet on seeing it but was determined to have a go.

Abseiling Equipment Checks

The group were shown their abseiling equipment and after a short introductory session in which the group were shown the basic principles of Abseiling Matt volunteered to go down first.

After seeing Matt go down, Pete his dad went next followed by Nick. After a couple of goes, we then decided to move to the abseil over the river. Matt was happy with what he had achieved but was willing to be at the bottom of the abseil to pull them in before they hit the water!

Nick went first and followed by Pete and both enjoyed so much they decided on a second go which they both were successful in doing.

All the group enjoyed the abseiling and felt they had achieved so much and after a team photo together and after a short walk back to the car park the group decided after the goodbyes to retire to the Red Lion pub at Litton to meet the rest of the group and celebrate their achievements.
