About Canalside Outdoor Activity Centre

Canalside is an Outdoor Activity Centre based in Mill Hill Blackburn. The centre has been developed for use by local Scout, Guide and other Youth Groups to ensure young people have access to learn and have fun outdoors in a safe environment.

Since taking out a lease on the land from Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council in April 2016 a huge amount of work has been completed by our dedicated volunteers. If you would like to volunteer in any way please click here for more details of volunteer opportunities.
