We are part of the Royston Scout District in Hertfordshire, located in the Scout Hut, behind the Town House on Church End in Barley.
The "Barkway" part of our name comes from where our scout group first started which was in the reading rooms at Barkway. The group started with just a Cub Pack. We eventually raised enough money to build own headquarters at Barley.
Our Scout group provides Scouting for girls and boys from 6 to 14 years.
