Grafton Street Plans

Cambridge District Scout Archive

1926 – 1965

The Headquarters building sat between Paradise Street and Grafton Street and purchased in two phases.

Plan completed in conjunction with proposed sale

The cellars were proposed for use as air raid shelters in WW2. The passage connecting the two buildings is the crosshatched section on the right/ east of the building. It was in use before both halves were owned by the District for access to the toilets.

Ground floor and position between Grafton Street and Paradise street.
Cellars under

The original equipment store was half way up the stairs in the old shooting gallery. Neither is entirely evident from this plan but the Equipment store later moved to the top of the stairs

First floor

The only caretaker known is Mr. Flack. The house is labelled ‘Caretakers house’ and it is to be assumed he lived here. It has an outside toilet but no identified bathroom.
