The Scouts camp at this spot, just below Taxal Duck Pond, every year.
The right was given to them by the Jodrell family.
They are the 161st Manchester Scout Group and also officially known as Jodrell's Own.

When we knew the scouts were due we would listen for the sound of their bugles etc as they marched from Whaley Station about Saturday lunchtime then run down Macclesfield Road to watch them. As youngsters we would get to know them quite well as we used to visit them at the camp site below Taxel. Sometimes they would come to visit us on Macclesfield Road. We were always sad after their two weeks holiday was over.
