Where?

Scout HQ (Scout Hut)

Weekly meetings mostly take place at our Scout HQ in the grounds of Chestnuts School, St Clements Drive, just off the Buckingham Road in Bletchley.  You can enter via the staff car park entrance on St Clements Drive.  If a meeting will be elsewhere, your Section Leader will let you know in advance.

If using sat-nav you should use MK3 5EL as the postcode; the school’s postcode may take you to the other entrance which is closed in the evening.

The Quarries

The Quarries is our local Scout camp site, and is located on Stratford Road near Cosgrove just north of Milton Keynes.  It’s common for us to do evening activities and camps here, and it is also the location of the District Scout Shop where you can buy uniform and similar items (open during term times Saturday 10am-4pm and Wednesday 6pm-8pm).

The postcode is MK19 7JA.

The Quarries has its own website here.

Stockgrove Park/Rushmere (for Wide Games)

We often do Wide Games in the woods at Stockgrove Park near Heath and Reach.  The Scouts typically meet at the old Stockgrove entrance on Brickhill Road, please note the car park is usually closed at the time we meet so we drop off/pick up in the entrance, please car share if you can.  The postcode for this is LU7 0BB, but it is actually a fair way further south towards Heath and Reach from where this postcode will take you.

There is another (Rushmere) entrance off Linslade Road south of Heath and Reach which is sometimes used by the Explorers.  The postcode for this is LU7 0EB but the actual entrance is further back along Linslade Road towards Heath and Reach than the sat-nav is likely to take you.  Please check with your Section Leader if you are not sure which entrance you will be meeting at – they are quite a long walk apart!
