PHOTOS: Urban Altitude takes guests to new heights

Daring guests were quite literally taken to new heights as an adrenaline-pumping aerial assault course was launched in Colne.

Officially opened by Pendle dignitaries last night, Urban Altitude is a 42ft framework that boasts a a 60metre zip-wire, a Leap of Faith, power-fan, Jacob’s Ladder, climbing wall and rope courses built around a main activity tower.

Located behind Pendle Leisure Centre, off Crown Way, the exciting outdoor pursuit requires visitors to make their way from station to station using a series of aerial ropes and ‘stepping stones’, with qualified instructors assisting them through.

Pendle Leisure Trust chief executive Phil Storey, said: “It’s fantastic that this unique outdoor activity has been created in Pendle and that its residents have something like this right on their doorstep.”
