Take a look around our unit from the comfort of your home or office...

Thousands of Tameside youngsters have been trained in this facility over the years since it was purpose built in 1978, a few of the staff at the unit today were either members of staff or cadets at the unit back then.

Since 1978 the unit has had many paint jobs, two years ago a purpose built accommodation block with boys and girls dormitories, staff accommodation and toilets/showers was added above a new boat house where all the unit/boating repairs are done. In addition just over a year ago the unit extended its galley to provide a purpose built commercial kitchen to handle more cadets/visitors at the unit.

The unit is host to various organisations both in the sea cadet community and also schools, clubs and the police for training. We can provide accommodation, catering facilities and plenty of classrooms fitted with internet connected computers - the ideal place to run training weekends or even the occasional party or get together.
