The centre is based over three floors. The basement comprises a shower room, boiler house, dry games area (including bouldering wall) and workshop and boathouse. An en-suite bedroom is situated over the workshop, which is accessible by both a separate outside door and also directly from within the centre.
On the ground floor is a large entrance lobby, drying room, toilets and six bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms sleep eight and three accommodate four people.
The lounge and dining room is located on the upper floor and has dining tables, with a choice of benches or chairs. The room can also double as a study area for lectures, group activities and film shows. The kitchen and pantry is on the same floor and is fully equipped with large catering facilities.

The centre also benefits from central heating and has ample parking provision.
During the mid 1980’s Huddersfield South West District Scout Council substantially rebuilt and extended the centre using a M.S.C. community service scheme. A total of over £100,000 was raised by local Scouts and by grant aid. During construction we had up to 28 men on site, with work lasting 30 months.
The drainage and re-surfacing of the car park area was also carried out following of the opening of the centre, and an outdoor games area was built on the flat area of land adjacent to the centre measuring approximately 110m x 15m, which can be used as a 5-a-side football pitch, a tennis court or for other similar uses.
