Prudhoe 1st Scout Group

The 1st Prudhoe Scout Group is based in the former mining town of Prudhoe, only 10 miles from Newcastle upon Tyne on the south bank of the River Tyne. Here a 30m long stone and marbel hillside badger marks the path to our Norman castle which guards our Scout hut and the home of our thriving scouting community.


Our group has been running for over 100 years!

It was the location in 1908 of “Lookwide”, the first ever National Scout Camp at Fourstones. The vast majority of the District is rural yet Scouting takes place right along the Tyne valley.
