About Us

About the Lakeland Climbing Centre ltd.

In 1993 three climbers met and hatched a plan to build a climbing wall. One climber had the capital, one climber had the skills to build the wall and the other had found the perfect building for the Kendal Wall, the old Milk Drying Plant in Kendal by December 1995 the doors were opened to the new Kendal Wall in December 1995.

In 1996 the Main Wall was added at a height of 18.5 m and by the late 1990’s the Kendal Wall had gained recognition for its quality of climbing and was ranked in the BMC’s top 3 in England.  For 14 years the Lakeland Climbing Centre grew steadily and developed a loyal and supportive customer base of climbers who appreciated having a major indoor climbing wall in an area of relatively low population. The Centre has also enjoyed group use from local outdoor centres as well as trade from tourists and seasonal visitors.

2014 also saw the Lakeland Climbing Centre opening a second site. VauxWall Climbing Centre a state of the art bouldering centre in London’s Zone One.  7 Years on and six new bouldering walls in London and we are turning our attention back to the North West with the opening of LancasterWall and PrestonWall. The Lakeland Climbing Centre is a company renowned for it passion for climbing and we aim to pass this on to each and every customer so they not only  have a fantastic experience but they also receive and insight into the UKs climbing culture, it’s history and ethos.
