Tower Wood Kit List - 2022


Many items of clothing are likely to get wet. It is often underestimated how many warm clothes are needed to ensure that the activities are enjoyed, whatever the weather.

  • Old, thick jumpers (fleeces are particularly good)
  • Pairs of old tracksuit bottoms or similar (Jeans are unsuitable for outdoor activities)
