How to find us -


The Bidwell Guide & Scout Centre is set in a secluded forest location with the Little Ouse River running along its southern-western edge.  The Centre is a purpose built brick building and is situated within the Two Mile Bottom Scout Campsite.

The site is signposted off the A134 (north of Thetford), two miles north of the A11 Thetford By-pass and is reached via a track through the forest.  As you turn into the site take the left fork (which is signposted with the Bidwell sign) and follow this track under the railway bridge (which is very low – less than 2.4m clearance).   Bear right up a small incline, along the forest track beside the railway line to where you will see the Centre. 

Please use your hazard warning lights where indicated and keep to 10mph speed limit.

PLEASE NOTE - If you are intending to bring a vehicle which is higher than 2.4m there is an alternative access route that can be used.  Please be sure to ask about it when making your booking.

*The address of the centre for Sat Nav purposes ONLY is Mundford Road, Thetford, Norfolk, IP24 1LZ.  This address should NOT be used for posting letters as the Post Office do not deliver to the Centre.  The access track does not appear on electronic maps.
