As the title says, just gauging interest.

My pal and fellow classic vehicle enthusiast is developing a campsite on his farm and is keen to get input and ideas from some regular campers before he installs shower blocks, hookups and so forth for next season. He has suggested a weekend of camping for TLB/EB members at minimum cost in return for your ideas and opinions. There may be a token fee to cover the cost of required Portaloos, but no more. I'd expect this to be around 10 quid per bus.

Jimmy is a cool guy, the site is in a lovely secluded spot close to the Pennines and next to a river. Great place to come if you have kids who like/need to 'run-free', also a great area for walking, cycling and all that jazz.

Link to the location

Here's the drill:
  • Very informal - no marked pitches, so circle your wagons!
    No frills - no showers, no hookups, though you will be able to get charged up at the farm.
    Fire pits and barbecues welcome.
    Dogs welcomed but must be kept under control (it's a working sheep farm!!).

Options (if folks are interested) include:
  • Barbecue/hog roast or similar
    Music in the barn on Saturday night
    Shuttle runs to the (very good) pubs in the village 3 miles away
    If you like coarse angling there is an adjacent pond - also brand new, partially stocked and needing 'evaluation' for next season.

There is a poll on TLB (just to keep it in one place) where you can vote on your preferred weekend. Photo of the area to whet your appetite is there also :party0021:
