Within G.M.W we have three campsites. Please find more information below.
Bispham Hall Scout Estate is a sixty acre activity centre situated almost midway between Manchester and Liverpool. From the summit of nearby Billinge Hill (1/2 mile away) there are magnificent views of the Welsh and Cumbrian mountains, the Lancashire coast and the former industrial heartland of the North West.
The site offers facilities suitable for groups of all ages, and although intended primarily for Scouts, we are happy to welcome Guides and other bona-fide youth organisations or schools. Camping areas include large, grassy fields for district or county camps, and smaller woodland clearings suitable for patrols. In addition there are two modern accommodation facilities, both designed with easy access for disabled people in mind.
