The branch was formed in March 1950 and we are pleased to say that some of the original and early members are still attending indoor meetings. The geographical area covered by the Branch includes the Hope Valley, Chesterfield, Retford, Doncaster and Barnsley.

In years gone by the Branch organised rail tours and outdoor visits to railway sites, principally locomotive depots. Recently however, outdoor visits have been few and far between due to the loss of suitable railway sites and the restrictions now in place following the privatisation of the railway system.

Branch meetings are held at Sheffield Scouts HQ, Trippet Lane, Sheffield S1 4EL. Afternoon meetings commencing at 13:45 for a 14:00 start, Evening meetings commencing at 19:15 for a prompt 19:30 start. The Scouts HQ is approximately 10 - 15 minutes uphill walk from the railway station and the adjacent Sheffield Interchange (bus station). Alternatively the nearest tram stop is City Hall less than 5 minutes walk from the venue. This is served by blue route trams from the railway station and yellow route trams from Meadowhall. A voluntary donation of 2.00 members / 3.00 non-members is suggested.

Both Society members and non-members are very welcome to attend our meetings.
