Additional notes

Birch Hall is one of the best locations in the country for basic scouting with excellent options for great fun days out.The site is open 12 months of the year and look what amenities you get for the fee, excellent fully equipped indoor accommodation that will keep you warm and dry, a haven on a wet and cold weekend, a large site to spread yourselves out. Materials are plentiful for the most ambitious bivouacs engineers and firewood is always available for cooking on the alter fires and campfires. The river also provides a further resource for supervised activities. (Subject to P.O.R.)
