More about Boyd Memorial Campsite & Activity Centre

The Boyd Memorial Campsite was donated to the Biggleswade and District Scouts by Lord Boyd of Merton and was formally part of his estate. Scouting and Lord Boyd have had a long association. The local scout troop met in the Grange, his large house as far back as the 1930’s. The campsite is home and a safe haven to a great variety of birds mammals and plants. Look out for Swans, Kingfishers, Herons, Muntjack Deer, Rabbits and Black Squirrels amongst others.

The campsite consists of a variety of rolling grassland, open woodland and activity areas including a purpose-dug lake for kayaking and rafting and a small lake for fishing and pond-dipping. All of the site's facilities and grounds are kept in shape by a team of dedicated volunteers to ensure that it's ready for your event.

Located in the village of Henlow in Bedfordshire and backing onto the river Ivel, the site is both quiet and secluded and is only a stone's-throw away from the local church, pub and chip shop.
