Geocache Description:

Lost Youth

On this very site the old 1st Eltham Scout hall stood. Whilst it is just a carpark now, there is a lot of history underfoot here.

Eltham Scout Hall 2007 (courtesy Google Maps)This area originally was the site of the First Eltham scout hall.

Home to Cubs, Scouts, Venturers and Rovers, many, many kids met here weekly.

After the scouts moved further down the road, the hall became derelict, and after a fire in January 2008, it was demolished to make way for the railway car park.

The building on the right of the old hall was the Eltham Rifle Club, and originally, the Eltham scouts had funded a lot of their activities by running a paper and bottle recycling depot.

The cache you are looking for is a small bison in a tree.

Congratulations to Smepster & Darcy for the FTF

Please BYO Pen as it is a bison...
