Outside at Eastnor
23 January 2009
Outside a company part of D3 have based part of their business at the old stables here for the last 3 years. They are a leading agency supplying brand experiences, adventure-based events, product launches and vehicle demonstration courses. They work regularly with Land Rover at Eastnor and elsewhere, and were involved in the new Defender launch here in 2007 and ran the UK selections for the Land Rover G4 Challenge.
Outside have set up a series of team building activities in the grounds and, as the images below show, they use the castle for abseiling and a spectacular zip wire ride across the lake. Companies coming here for corporate training days or off-site meetings can now add an interesting new activity to their programmes.
Most of the castle team, voluntarily of course, have tried the zip wire across the lake. I certainly enjoyed it myself and might even have been tempted to try dropping off into the lake half way across if I had not been thoroughly secured to the wire by a harness. The zip wire and abseiling are popular as sponsored activities for fund raising for charity. J H-B
