The Arc will offer bouldering and roped climbing, including some auto belays and roped lines outside overlooking a free skatepark. There will be a welcoming cafe that we hope will become a vibrant community hub for the people of Chippenham. We will offer adult and youth courses and personal instruction for those wanting to learn how to climb or to brush up on skills.
Built by Chippenham Borough Lands Charity with support from Sport England, the centre will be operated by TCA. The Arc is The Climbing Academy’s fifth centre, our third in the south west of England.
Sport England CBLC was awarded £100,000 from Sport England to help build the climbing centre.
The skatepark is an unsupervised facility. Users skate there at their own risk. Visitors will be free to come and go from the skatepark during opening hours. See more about restrictions on opening times in FAQs.
