The activity was part of a six-week woodland adventure course at the centre in Cleeve, which was held for people over the age of 50.

Participants had to rely one one another and work as a team to ensure the whole group could safely navigate the obstacles incuding wobbly bridges, tunnels, cargo nets, a foam mangle and a maze.

The adventurers, aged 50-87, finished the day covered in mud and soaking wet, but were delighted with their achievements.

During the action-packed course, the participants have explored the woodland, lit fires, toasted marshmallows, rowed boats in Bristol docks and learnt archery skills.

To mark the final session, they will cook a banquet over a fire. To find out about future courses, email alice.tucker@groundwork.org.uk or call 01934 833723.
