The Watson Scout Centre, located in the North York Moors National Park, is owned and run by North Yorkshire County Scouts.

It was opened in 1969 and a first floor extension with toilets and showers was added in 1999.
The Centre is situated in the picturesque village of Carlton-in-Cleveland, near to the main Stokesley to Thirsk Road (A172) and on the edge of the National Park.
It is a substantial stone building which was originally a Manor House (Grade II listed) converted and extended to provide mixed accommodation for training and scouting activities on a self-catering basis, and is used all year round to support our unpaid volunteer Leaders and the over 5,000 young people in our care over the whole County.
