Castleshaw Centre is Oldham Council's Outdoor Education Centre. We are located on the Pennine moors between Oldham and Huddersfield, one mile from the village of Delph.
Self catering accommodation is available to groups of up to 38, with a minimum booking of 17. Accommodation is mainly in bunk beds. Breakfast and evening meals can also be provided by prior arrangement. The village of Delph has a supermarket, post office, shops, pubs and restaurants.
There is a wide range of cycling and walking options in the surrounding area. We are close to the Pennine Way, and the Pennine Bridleway runs right through our valley.
A delightful (but hilly)12 mile ride will bring you to the route of the 2014 Tour de France stage 2 - at the top of Cragg Vale or the bottom of Holme Moss.

A range of other outdoor activities, eg, canoeing, climbing etc. can also be provided by our qualified and experienced staff team
