Welcome to Witney Buttercross Scout Group. With over 400 young people and 40 adults in uniform we are one of the largest scout groups in England. We are based in a former chapel on Marlborough Lane in the heart of Witney.

The current group was formed in 1970 with one Cub pack and one Scout troop. Now we have five Beaver colonies, five Cub packs, four Scout troops and an Explorer unit. Our leaders provide a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities to help young people develop their full potential.

Hall Hire

The Witney Buttercross Scout Hut, Marlborough Lane, Witney, is a great venue for a variety of events, such as parties, club events and group meetings and is available to hire.

Marquee Hire

The Scout Group owns a number of marquees which are available for hire. Profits from hire go directly towards funding the scout group.

Stable Barn

Stable Barn Project

Our scout hut is in constant use, weekday mornings and every weekday evening, often with two section meetings running one after the other. In December 2009, after fundraising, we purchased the Stable Barn opposite our scout hut. We are now raising funds to transform it into a modern flexible space facilitating many activities not available in our area, such as climbing. For further details see the Stable Barn page.
