The White House, Gilwell Park
The White House, Gilwell Park
Built in the 1750s on the site of an earlier house, Osborne Hall.
The house has had a succession of owners including The Treasury who took it over in 1812 after its then owner had been caught embezzling large sums from the national funds.
It was acquired by the Scout Association in 1919 and continues to be used by them as a conference and training centre.
