The History of Gilwell Park

This is the fourth in a series of online talks hosted by Chingford Historical Society.

From medieval manor to highwayman’s haunt and Regency retreat to Scouting wonderland Gilwell Park has stood witness to some extraordinary events. Over 101 years it has gained a place in the hearts of Scouts from across the world. Find out how a rundown estate on the edge of Epping Forest became the spiritual home of the global Scouting Movement.
