Park Farm is the Banstead District Site and is two acres adjoining Banstead Woods and Park Downs. Since 2006 many improvements have been made and are still ongoing, including a recently opened climbing / abseiling tower with climbs for all levels of skill, a training room, an archery range and an indoor rifle shooting range.  There are 8 concrete altar fire places for patrol cooking, alongside the individual tent pitches. The kitchen is well equipped and has a 6 ring catering cooker, double oven and a fridge freezer. A large hall is included for dining and for emergency accommodation for camps.

There are male and female leaders’ and boy’s and girl’s wash rooms with hot showers.

Visit in May to see Banstead Woods as a sea of bluebells.  There is a nature trail nearby. Chipstead Station is a short walk away for frequent trains to and from London.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
