Meeting Places on a Map

The BP Shell Scout Centre

Most of our sections are based at The BP Shell Scout Centre on Wilfred Gardens. It is owned and managed by Ashby (Hastings) Scout Group and is not that easy to find!

The Postcode, for a Sat nav, is LE65 2GX

Heading away from the town centre towards Measham and the A42, turn right on the mini roundabout after Rawden Terrace on the left and before the petrol station on your right.

Pass the Ivanhoe Social Club and Fire station on your left.

Where the road forks, take the right turn

There are three bungalows and then our driveway on the left-hand side. Drive down by a car, the road is narrow and there are often children playing outside, but there is plenty of car parking. Please refrain from turning in the driveway opposite.

We are working to improve the signage and to encourage shared lifts, cycling and pedestrian traffic.

Get in touch if you are still not sure where to go.

Directions to Willesley Campsite

Head away from the town centre towards Measham. Turn right towards Donisthorpe

Continue along the road until the crossroads where you will turn left

Where the road narrows, turn left down the track. Please take care as it is single track along most of the way and vehicles may be coming towards you

At the end of this track there are two gates – you will usually be directed to the left and up to the car park but follow any instructions from volunteers, please.

Directions to Newman’s Meadow aka “The Field”

Leave Ashby along Smisby Road and go straight over the roundabout with the bypass

Take the first right

The first gateway on the left may be open if the ground is dry enough to drive on. Otherwise, please drop off and turn around here.

There is quite a bit more hedge now! (And we have toilets and a shelter too).
