Stiff and Stilted

Stiff & Stilted are a bunch of ‘Scouting’ people who are talented in Stilt Walking. We meet up informally and are involved in Scouting in several different areas. The majority of us are part of Solihull County Active Support and are based here in Solihull. We are now represented in many counties across the country, so you never know where we might end up next. we are always looking for new Members so if you are interested, get in touch.

The Stiff & Stilted Award

We are pleased to award one of our neckers to every Under 18 camper who manages, over the camp, to learn to walk unaided on our 6 Foot high stilts. Please don’t worry we do offer some support. We have over the years presented more than 200 Neckers all made individually by ‘Andy the Stilts’ go on, give it a go!

We try to enjoy all that we do with our stilts, we ‘Perform’ at Gilwell Park and try to do a fortnight Camping at some form of ‘International Camp’ every year. You might spot us about in our distinctive Necker’s.

Our Stilts

We use all sorts of stilts! in fact we are ‘Mad about them’. We train on ‘Dura’s [these are the ones that builders use so you can stand still on them] We perform on Single pole stilts, both home made and imported from France!

We have recently taken delivery of a pair of Digi Legs and they certainly are different!!
