We are sorry to announce that we are unable to go ahead with Canonteign 220ft Waterfall Abseil 2020 in its current form, however we are looking at an alternative date. 

This decision follows the Government advice surrounding Covid -19 and we are ensuring we play our part in protecting the health and safety of our participants and the wider population

We will keep you informed of our plans around this.

Abseil 220ft down England's highest waterfall, Canonteign Falls near Exeter in Devon, whilst raising money for The Royal British Legion. 

The waterfall is situated on the edge of Dartmoor's National Park, in the heart of Devon's Teign Valley, offering some of the most spectacular waterfall and woodland scenery in Devon.

No experience is necessary and full training will be given by our professional abseil suppliers on the day.  However, we do emphasise this is an extreme challenge so you will need to be fit to take part and walk a steep 15-minute incline to the top of the waterfall area.

The entry fee is £20 per person with a minimum sponsorship of £150 per person.

Participants must be 14 years old or older. All participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult and have a signed consent form. Due to harness size, the maximum weight for the abseil is 20 stone.

Once you have registered for the abseil, you will be sent a fundraising pack and allocated a time and day for your abseil.

Please note, this event is run over the weekend of Saturday 27 June and Sunday 28 June and the Saturday abseil slots will be filled first.  

If you have any questions about the event, or would like more info, you can speak to us on 0333 011 4500 or email us at

What happens if, due to current uncertainties, Canonteign Abseil is postponed?

We’d like to reassure you that in the current uncertain circumstances surrounding coronavirus we will be liaising with the organisers of Canonteign Abseil to ensure that we keep our participants, staff, and beneficiaries safe.

If an event is postponed we will offer an alternative date and, fees and fundraising will be transferred over. If the organiser finds it necessary to cancel they’ll be in touch about refund options.
