THE National Forest is taking tree climbing to new levels this summer as visitors will be given the chance to scale an oak on bank holiday Monday.
Goodleaf Tree Climbing will be setting up its award-winning treetop experience at the National Forest Wood Fair at Beacon Hill Country Park, in North West Leicestershire, on Monday, August 25.
Climbers will first learn the ropes with qualified and experienced instructors and then test their skills by ascending the branches, before being treated to a treetop view of the growing National Forest.
Anyone aged eight and above can have a go free of charge.
Sessions are booked in advance and climbers will be given a time slot.
Tickets to the wood fair are priced £9 for adults, £6 for concessions or £25 for a family ticket on the day.
Tickets purchased in advance receive a 20 per cent discount.
They are available from either the Ashby and Swadlincote Tourist Information Centres or online at www.nationalforest woodfair.co.uk
