Core Facilities

The 1st Drayton Scout Group headquarters are situated approximately 5 miles
outside Norwich on the A1067 (map ref: 134/188132). Set within an extensive 10
acre site of grassland and woodland, the site is ideal for camping and Scouting
activities. Nearby are supermarkets, ‘local’ stores, a post office and a petrol station.
The Marriott’s Way footpath is within easy walking distance.

The headquarters, grounds and other facilities (see below) are all available for hire.
The charge is £2.50 per person per night and all utilities are included.

Available facilities are divided into ‘Core’ and ‘Additional’. All core facilities are
provided as part of the venue hire. Additional facilities are bookable and will carry a
surcharge (rates will vary depending on requirements). Please note that the
additional facilities will require the presence of our own qualified leaders and their
availability cannot be guaranteed. Should your own personnel be appropriately
qualified to use the additional facilities, then discounted rates are available. Please
note that you will need to provide your own equipment for archery (however safety
net and butts can be provided), rifle shooting and catapulting and proof of
qualification will be required.
