Formally known as the 1st Vale of Pickering Scout Archives. The Scouting Yesterdays Archive holds many interesting Scouting bygones, 100's of Badges over 30 Uniforms and many many more interesting artifacts. The archive was set up in 2009 as a research project on Pickering Scouts but in 2015 went through a complete reform and update so here we are today as the Scouting Yesteryear's Archive. (privately Owned Archive) our aim is to educate people of the history of Scouting.
