Leap of Faith - abseil from Abbey tower

On 6th and 7th July Genesis Trust Bath and Bath Abbey are inviting 100 brave people to take part in a once in a lifetime opportunity to abseil off the top of the Bath Abbey tower, 49 meters above the city. The aim is to raise £20,000 for the Genesis Trust, supporting vulnerable and homeless people locally, and Bath Abbey’s Footprint Project.

Bath Abbey is the last great medieval cathedral to have been built in England and from its highest point offers stunning vistas across the city of Bath and beyond. Venturing up 212 steps to the top of the tower, participants will be harnessed to a rope before they abseil three-quarters of the way to the bottom, something which has never been done before.

Registration is £30 and minimum sponsorship is £150. The ‘Leap of Faith!’ is open to everyone on a first come first served basis. Simply click here to secure a place. All participants will be given training and supervision by a professional abseiling team, who are organising the logistics.
