The Mayhill and Huntley Scout Group is based in the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire. The Forest of Dean is one of the most beautiful areas in the UK, with miles upon miles of woodland, covered with a massive web of foot paths. We have two meeting places being the Hut in Huntley and our newly developed barn which we are continually updating situated near Mayhill. The hut offers a great chance to teach the troop new and develop existing skills. However for the majority of the time the Scouts will use the barn with facilities to go night hiking up mayhill, camping, miles of land for wide games and so much more.
Make friends and try new indoor and outdoor activities
Learn practical skills while having adventures with friends
Build confidence, resilience and a sense of adventure

We are a very fortunate Troop to have such great facilities. We have a hut which can be used for small scale meetings. Furthermore our Barn situated on Mayhill has a large field for camping with masses of surrounding woodland and miles of footpaths for you to roam. The site has running water and toilets. The barn may also available if you want some cover just incase it rains, or just as a central meeting place. Along a few paths to the West, is the highest point in Gloucestershire, May Hill, which is visible from all over the County. On a clear day, you can see as far as the Brecon Beacons, and even the Black Mountains in South Wales. The site has become very popular with groups all over the district.
