    For members in the SW who may find Newark a bit of a hike you may like a small late season do in this part of the country.

    We came across this site last year.

    A decent amount of space behind the pub.

    Not far from here.

    And short walk to the canal from the quiet village.

    I'll add more detail idc but please post here if interested.

    It is at the other end of England from where I live, but I would be interested.

    Small update.

    Have booked directly with the pub and costs are £6/person/night.

    01672 562289

    There will also be a DoE group there (as there was last year). Other than that there is quite a bit of room available. Just keeping fingers crossed and praying to the weather gods.

    If anyone is tempted it's a lovely area of Wiltshire with many local highlights, hopefully the wasps nest in the canal bank has gone this year.

    Awwwwwww! I thought that this event was not happening and I am now booked for other things on that weekend.

    I am sure that you will have a great time anyway.

    Never mind Trevor, perhaps next year.

    As you may remember we have previously camped over at Porlock in Sept where few local members have popped in.

    Perhaps being a bit more organised myself next year might help as well.
