Felden Lodge

Located south of the historic town of Hemel Hempstead, and nestled within 32 acres of south-west Hertfordshire countryside, Felden Lodge has been an important site for the Boys’ Brigade for over seventy years.  

Since its opening Felden Lodge has been a centre of activity for the Boys’ Brigade and has been the venue for a diverse range of training activities. From the early years of its use by the Brigade, one of the central training events was the King George VI Leadership training when, for one week each summer, Felden Lodge housed intensive training for senior non-commissioned Officers. Over the years the programme of training has expanded to meet the needs of the Boys’ Brigade in a changing World, with Firm Foundations and ‘Life 2 the Max’ more recent additions to the development opportunities available to members, Officers, and helpers alike. 

In October 2023 the Conference and Training centre was closed. Felden Lodge remains the Headquarters of The Boys’ Brigade of the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
