Adventure at Trentham Estate

Earlier this year we spent a fun week at Trentham Estate in Staffordshire, building and installing their infamous Altitude Tower. Trentham Estate it located near the small village of Trentham near Stoke-on-Trent, and remains a firm favourite when it comes to taking a fun day out with the family.

There literally is something for everyone, whether you fancy visiting the award-winning Trentham Gardens for peace and quiet or fun and action, Trentham Shopping Village for shopping and eating out, or a visit to the Monkey Forest; there is so much to do.

Children have plenty to choose from when it comes to the playground equipment here, including a challenging assault course to keep the mind going, a zip wire to take a giant leap on, and swings to push their friends on. However, the real centrepiece is the adrenalin pumping Altitude Tower, which is a mountainous wooden pyramid tower with a slide taking little thrill-seekers down to the bottom.

But can the climbing wall to the top be tackled first? A real showstopper for Trentham Gardens, kids come from far and wide to play, explore and enjoy the great outdoors.

The famous Playscheme Altitude Tower sits pretty in the Adventure Playground, which we designed, built and installed, with the superb guidance of representatives from Trentham Estate and the help of an additional sub-contractor.

The Altitude Tower itself is a standalone piece of equipment which was a bespoke design to enhance their existing play area and create a central focal point. It now remains the tallest of all of our towers at nine metres high!

The beautiful stainless steel slide comes from GW Smith who are expert steel fabricators, and who were involved with the project at Trentham. The slide was designed especially to fit the bespoke tower and is also the largest slide we have ever created, drawing attention to the whole unit.

Rich Stirk, our Production and Workshop Manager said of the install: "Building the Altitude Tower was possibly the largest construction undertaken by Playscheme. As its name suggests, it dwarfed the majority of the impressive pieces we have built in our history.

"Bearing in mind that the whole tower is over 9m tall, we had the difficulty of actually building such a structure in the workshop! The result was a great team effort from all involved, bringing an idea to conception and to reality for the children of Stoke to enjoy."
