News about Barnswood

December 2023

Barnswood is now in winter mode. This means that the North and South
loops have no water or lighting, and toilet blocks 2 and 3 are closed.
The other toilet blocks are now heated. The farmer is also in winter
mode having moved his sheep into the access field, so the road gate
now needs to be kept closed. Be aware when arriving.

Barnswood is closed from 22nd December to 3rd January to give the site
(and wardens) a rest.

The maintenance and management teams continue however to effect
repairs and prepare for and implement developments.

If you would like to join any of the warden, maintenance or management
teams, contact the Camp Team Lead via the district website We will give you a warm
welcome. You can volunteer to do however much fits in with your
current lifestyle and commitments. Every little helps.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
