3rd Tynemouth

(Ritsons Own) Scout Group

Billy Mill Lane, North Shields, NE29 8LP


Over the years we have had many trips to Powburn. I have included these photos as a reminder of what Powburn used to look like as well as the camps we have enjoyed.

Most of them were taken by Dudley Rogers during the 70's and 80's.

If you are able to identify a particular trip, please let me know. Each photo has a unique name when it's hovered over to help describe it.

The photos above show where the mattresses used to be stored at the end of the hall and how they were laid on the floor or us to sleep on, not like the luxury bunk rooms that exist now!
