Rock Up, in the atrium at the West Terrace, was closed yesterday and is likely to be closed until next Friday (January 17).

The facility has been closed so the Rushden Lakes management team can repair the building's roof.

A Rushden Lakes spokesman said: "We're very sorry about the closure. This is essential work to the roof above the climbing area. There are no problems with the equipment or operations of Rock Up.
