info:

The camp school opened in 1938, providing outdoor activities to the younger generation from the pendle borough and beyond.
Whitehough is a 22-acre outdoor education centre set in the picturesque countryside.
The facility sleeps 64 in a two-dormitory set-up and an additional 16 in an on-site lodge.

The site has two classrooms, a large dining room and an extensive camping field. As well as this, Whitehough hosts an 80-seater conference suite, suitable for training and presentations.

It closed in August 2015
The decision to close the school was a difficult one the county council had been faced with to achieve some huge savings they needed to make.
Question remains over the future of the camp.

I fitted a load of water heaters throughout that site in 2015! Typical council, spend money on a place and close it down.....!

This place is not abandoned. Went over the other week and there was builders and security on site. It has been bought by burnley football club.
