Abseiling from Millers Dale Bridge off the Monsal Trail and directly over the sparkling River Wye must be the best way of viewing the beautiful valley and Derbyshire Dales. Whether you're visiting the Peak District for an adrenaline rush, fun-fueled stag or hen party, a 10 year olds birthday party or family gathering, our friendly, qualified & professional team will give you a memorable adventure.

We all had a fantastic time, Pete is great at reassuring those who were very nervous as we were all doing it for the first time. Afterwards we all wanted to go back and do it again.
