Centre description:

Our Devon Holne Park Outward Bound School was located right on the edge of Dartmoor with the river Dart running through its grounds. It was originally opened as a centre from young men but became the first centre to experiment with running all-girls and mixed courses in the late 50’s. Activities at the centre were focused around caving, climbing, cliff rescues and expeditions.
