The Superbole is one of the UK’s most exciting extreme sports venues. In the search for innovative and different uses for the land, Bolesworth Estate together with its tenant partner developed a mountain boarding centre in Harthill. Mountain boarding is snowboarding with wheels and is popular with teenagers in particular. The centre has top class facilities including jib park, fourcross downhill track and now also has a downhill mountain bike facility www.halesboardandbikepark.com
