About Us

Where are we?  Castle Morpeth Badge ColCastle Morpeth is a large rural Scouting District in Northumberland County.  The area extends from Hadston and Chevington in the north-east corner, to Stannington at the south-east, Heddon-on-the-Wall in the south-west and Otterburn in the north-west.  It includes the major towns of Morpeth and Ponteland.

Northumberland is blessed with some of most beautiful countryside and landscapes in the country with the Cheviot and Simonside Hills, unspoilt coastlines, Kielder Water, Castles, forests and wildlife:  Just the place for ….. Everyday Adventures

How Big Are We? There are 4 Scout Groups in the District and on a weekly basis we deliver Scouting to over 500 young people aged 6-18, with the help of over 80 volunteer leaders and a team of administrative supporters. We are a growing District with numbers increasing year on year.

How Does It Work? Scouting is delivered wholly by trained volunteers (Leaders, Assistants, Managers, Supporters, Administrators) although we do have the support of a national staff team employed by the Scout Association.
