    Err I'm sure I asked this last time, but I don't think I got a response: how can I find everybody once I arrive at the site?

    If you're going via Kearsley; when you get off the train & go off the platform ,there's a path & some steps to your left. Go down the steps and left at the bottom. The other side of the bridge there's a bus stop . take a 512 or 513 to Wood st. Ringley. It's only about 5 stops down but there's a fair hill involved. Back track about 100yds and site entrance is in the crook of the bend.

    Fantastic weekend, really enjoyed it. A big thanks to everyone for making it such a great meet especially Dave for organising and Riam and the guys for putting on the forge in the field. The site was beautiful, all the Bluebells out in force.

    A few pics

    Hi guys,

    Thank you for a great weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was great to meet you all. I think I might stay away from the gin next time.... I mean rum. Sorry for the bad jokes :) Below is a small collection of images that were captured by my portable communications device. Unfortunately said device is terrible in low light conditions so no photos of the group :( Oh and I found my spoon in the end :D


    This is dawn on Saturday morning. Time for bed.

    Hi, all.

    Sorry I couldn't make it back, but I still can't find my sleeping bag. Sounds like you all had a good night.
    Thanks, Dave for sorting out my hammock, just a shame I didn't get chance to use it. See you all next time.

    As always that was a very good camp. Giants seat is geting to be one of the best. I made a lot of new friends which is always a bonus. I learnd a lot of new skills like tempering and it was good to to see you all. The forging went very well and every one worked hard to make it happen. My arms feel like they will soon fall off, so for tonite i will just say thanks Dave Bromley for the camp and help and thanks to gray for his kindness and thanks to mad dave for the amazing biltong and thanks to everyone for another amazing camp :You_Rock_ ...

    You're most welcome.

    I was looking forward to the meet myself, but the norovirus/gastric flu got me on Thursday.

    Next time...
