Lakeland Adventure Centre, Lake District

After being contacted by the Eric Wright Trust and B&G Sears Contractors, BOYCO supplied our Built to Last peg rails and benching to revamp Lakeland Adventure Centre’s changing rooms. Proud to support a Northwest charity, Team BOYCO were more than happy to help transform the site by donating 90 pegs to accompany the changing and cloakroom furniture.

Project Scope

Situated by the idyllic Coniston Water in the Lake District, Lakeland Adventure Centre was founded by the Eric Wright Trust in 1998. Originally a former mansion house, it was purchased by the Trust and converted into an outdoor residential adventure centre focused on supporting young people. They offer activities from water sports to orienteering, providing an outdoor educational experience for students ‘regardless of their financial, social or physical background. To continue this philosophy, the need arose to refurbish the changing rooms of the adventure centre.
















Catering to children and young adults of various ages, the fixed furniture requested had to be durable yet comfortable. Originally, Eric Wright and B&G Sears requested benching only and informed BOYCO that they were going to reuse the original pegs in the refurbishment. Upon hearing this, we wanted to positively contribute to the project and donated 90 of our pegs to the project to accompany the benching.

This was not just to provide a professional finish to the changing rooms at Lakeland Adventure Centre; Team BOYCO also wanted to support the trust in providing the fantastic and long-lasting facilities for the young people that visit the centre. Our pegs are ‘unbreakable’, and robust enough even for this busy environment.

Along with the pegs, our benching was supplied. This was made to measure to fit the dimensions of the changing rooms and comes with our 10-year guarantee for long-lasting results. Our in-house design team specifically crafted the furniture to be both wall-fixed and have slats in the seating. This is to accommodate potential water from sodden clothing after participating in lake activities. It aids with cleaning too, as underneath the fixed furniture can easily be accessed by members of staff after use.

Bespoke Products

Due to the changing rooms being used by children and young people, all metal work used to manufacture the pegs and benching is coated in with BOYCO-pioneered ‘Hot Dip’ Nylon. This provides 500 x more abrasion resistance than powder-coated paint alternatives and protects against moisture - perfect for Lakeland Adventure Centre where there is potential for the fixed furniture to come into contact with water frequently. This provides long-lasting results, and durability that will withstand daily use by students.

In keeping with the natural setting of the Lake District where Lakeland Adventure Centre is located, BOYCO’s ‘Hot Dip’ Nylon coating is also environmentally friendly. It is made from castor oil, a non-toxic, a renewable source that has little to no carbon impact.

As per the BOYCO standard, our in-house Timber is twice coated with our Anti-Microbial lacquer. This has been formulated to stop bacteria from surviving on the surface. This is a fantastic addition to the high touch point area of the changing rooms and prevents the spread of harmful diseases. It also complements the cleaning procedures of Lakeland Activity Centre to provide a safe and healthy environment for the young people that use it.


Project Success

Following the completion of project, Team BOYCO visited the centre. The fixed furniture provided a fantastic finish for Lakeland Adventure Centre, who expressed that they were extremely pleased with the final result.

Team BOYCO is proud to have supported the Eric Wright Trust, who continue to provide a fantastic activity centre for young people to learn and enjoy.
