Additional notes

As the site is in the middle of the New Forest, we are restricted by the Forestry Commission by-laws. No fires, gas burners outside the site. This does not prevent normal Scouting activities taking place in the surrounding area.''Fire wood normally available. Access difficult for Special Needs due to slopes on the field and uneven ground.''The surrounding forest is ideal for nature work and visits to conservation projects.
