The Buckmore Park ‘Cave System’ is a man-made structure for use by Young People and Adults from all age groups / sections of the Scout and Guide Associations and other youth organisations aged from 5 years upwards. The system has been built in the shape of a wheel. The outer rim is nice and easy, and the spokes joining the rim to the hub are where the various ‘features ‘of the system are lurking.
Buckmore Park now has 10 mountain bikes available to rent. The campsite is currently setting out marked routes around the extensive campsite to cater for a wide variety of skills. The current routes are green (wide tracks suitable for all with undulating slopes) and blue (single track with longer sloped sections) with a few red (more challenging features). The 10 bikes are two sizes covering older Cubs to Adults.
We have a purpose built outdoor air rifle range available all year round. We have 4 targets available during each session. Equipment and instructors can be arranged, however pre-booking is essential.
Buckmore Park is fortunate to have an orienteering map covering a significant proportion of Buckmore Park with a variety of terrain types and features and an interesting network of paths and tracks.
Our campfire circle is an amazing setting
In early 2019 our Archery Range will have a shelter and permanent netting.
