Buckstone Adventure Centre - Summer 91

20 Elfins went to the Buckstone Adventure Centre, a fabulous little centre consisting of two bunk houses (one with a moose head on the chimney breast) set in a little piece of land right in the heart of the Forest of Dean. A very peaceful, very safe and very beautiful place it was too. Activities during the weekend included walking in the woods, climbing trees, scrambling over rocks, reading stories and a visit to Goodrich Castle. Unfortunately the centre is no more - it has just been closed down by Gloucestershire County Council as part of the cuts being made to bail out the bankers - the young people of Gloucestershire lose out again.
