Who we are

The Crookstone Adventure Trust is a charitable organisation set up to provide rudimentary accommodation as a base for outward-bound activities in the Peak District.

Our statement of intent is:

To help young people under the age of 25, of all abilities and backgrounds, by the provision of training facilities, and through their activities, to develop their physical, mental and spiritual capacities, so that they may grow to full maturity as individuals and members of society, and that their conditions of life may be improved.

We manage "Crookstone Barn", an outdoor centre for use by the general community, set in splendid isolation on the shoulder of Kinder Scout.

This listed building commands some of the best views in the Peak District, from the midst of the wild Derbyshire moors.

Our facilities are available to groups who require this type of accommodation to pursue training exercises, team building, group walking etc.
