The Trustees of Blackburn & District Outdoor Pursuits Centre are deeply saddened to learn of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. There would be no Bron-y-Gader without him, as the Trust was set up primarily to provide training and testing of candidates for awards under the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme. Our sincerest condolences are with Her Majesty the Queen and all Members of the Royal Family at this incredibly sad time.

As a tribute to Prince Philip, any photographs of DofE activities at Bron-y-Gader can be emailed to [email protected] for display in the Gallery.

Re-opening 2021
Posted Mar 2021

Bron-y-Gader is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

We will re-open for multi-household groups when the Welsh Government regulations allow.

We are currently accepting future bookings via our Make a Booking page.

Note: Availability during 2021 will be restricted because, for everyone's safety, we will be leaving a gap of at least 72 hours, or disinfecting the building by 'fogging' with a virucidal fine mist, between bookings until the government COVID-19 restrictions are removed.

For the safety of our guests and the local community, we are following Welsh Government guidance and are making changes to the way we operate, which will vary as the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and the guidance changes.
