Buckden House: Year 6 Residential

Pupils from Year six enjoyed the annual residential trip to Buckden House. 

Buckden is a village and civil parish in the Craven district of North Yorkshire, England.  Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Buckden is situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, and on the east bank of the River Wharfe in Wharfedale.   The village of Buckden is situated where Buckden Gill, which rises on Buckden Pike, joins the River Wharfe.  Buckden Pike is a fell at the head of Wharfedale, a valley in the Yorkshire Dales that stands above the village of Buckden.   

Buckden House Outdoor Education Centre is a converted manor house in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.  It is run as part of the City of Bradford’s Children’s Services and has been providing residential outdoor experiences to children and young people for over 30 plus years.   The house is nestled at the foot of Buckden Pike in the beautiful Upper Wharfedale valley.  Buckden House has 61 beds split across three floors, 2 dining rooms, a comfortable lounge, two classroom bases and large grounds.    During our stay pupils enjoyed a range of curricular based and adventurous activities such as gill scrambling, caving, high ropes, archery and healthy walks to see and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.  Buckden is most certainly a very stunning and peaceful place.
