from Google Maps

To get to the Sid Vale Scout Centre.

From Sidmouth:

On Sid Road turn right (if coming from Scott Cinema Sidmouth) or left (if coming from Fortescue) onto Salcombe Hill Road following signage for Salcombe Regis and Norman Lockyer Observatory.


Travel along Salcombe Hill Road and past the Norman Lockyer Observatory and we're just under a half a mile along the road on the left hand side from there. Look out for our new Scout Centre at the bottom right of our field and the signed gate, "Salcombe Regis Recreation Field".

From Sidford:

Follow the A3052 up the hill towards The Donkey Sanctuary. At the top of the hill turn right on to Salcombe Hill Road (just as the main road bends sharply to the left) - signposted Salcombe Regis. Follow this narrow lane for about a mile and a half. Go past the second left turn to Salcombe Regis and we're 500 yards ahead on the right. Look out for our new Scout Centre at the bottom right of our field and the signed gate, "Salcombe Regis Recreation Field".
