Longtown's Story

Longtown Outdoor Education Centre offers a wide range of challenging adventurous activities and courses for young people, adults, families and businesses.

It is located in a superb rural setting on the edge of the Black Mountains of the Brecon Beacon’s National Park. The fully equipped residential centre has excellent on-site facilities set in 16 acres of private grounds. They specialise in courses for schools, youth groups, Duke of Edinburgh Award candidates, adults and business groups.  Every course is tailored to produce the very best from each group. The centre is open 7 days a week all year round.  The courses vary in length from 1 day to 5 days and can be tailor-made to meet the needs of your group.


"We are indebted to the Wilson Foundation for their continued support of the centre.  For over 20 years the Wilson Foundation bursary fund has meant that no young person from families in financial difficulty in Northamptonshire has had to miss out on the amazing opportunities at Longtown.  Every week we see children at the centre developing their character through rising to the challenges on offer which is a great privilege." Mike Fawcett, Head of Centre
