A NEW climbing centre, called The Nest, is now open at The Old Vinyl Factory in Hayes, on the former EMI site.

It has a bouldering wall, fitness studio, gym, workspace and café, and is the brainchild of Rob Lawley and Sam Hunter, two individuals with a love of climbing.

Bouldering offers a full-body workout and improves flexibility, endurance and strength. It is also known to be a great stress reliever.

The fitness studio has a growing number of exercise classes from yoga and pilates to boxercise and kettlebells.
