The Scout Hut, Burley

The West Hampshire Scout Section were based at the Scout Hut that used to stand on Garden Road, behind the Pound Lane Garage in Burley.

Over the years, a number of of people (including some filming for the BBC) have mixed up the Boy Scouts, the youth organisation, with the Scout Sections of Auxiliary Units, part of the Regular Army. This might be one time where that is understandable - the hut belonging to the New Forest Boy Scouts.

The hut was demolished after the war and no trace remains.
