Hag Dyke

March 4 @ 5:45 pm - March 6 @ 5:00 pm


We are holding our annual Residential Camp at Hag Dyke Scout Hostel (www.hagdyke.com), on the Weekend of 4th to 6th  March 2022. 

Hag Dyke, in the picturesque Yorkshire Dales is a Scout Hostel administered by the 1st Ben Rhydding Scout Group in Ilkley. The Hostel was bequeathed to the group in 1947 and has been run by a group of volunteer wardens for the benefit of Scouts and other Youth Groups ever since.  

Hag Dyke Scout Hostel is situated halfway up Great Whernside and can only be reached on foot. The hostel has open coal fires and the highest chapel in England. 

The building was originally a farmhouse and its’ occupants traced back to 1730, but it is probably older and could have housed miners working in Dowber Ghyll lead mines opened in 1680. At 1525 feet it was believed to be the highest house in the former West Riding. A “Dyke” in Dales dialect means a mountain dividing wall and “Hag” means enclosed land or an intake (from the moor in this case). The name therefore means the wall bounding the intake from the moor. The house is reputed to be haunted!! 

The following Activities will be available Hill Walking, Orienteering and Fun – These are subject to the weather conditions. All staff operating Hill walking activities hold the relevant Scouting Qualifications.
