    I've taken enough ribbing from Matt's missus for not staying overnight, gotta stop on a least one.

    Sorry, below is a link to the camp site
    www.middlewoodcamp.org.uk

    The address is:
    Middlewood Scout Camp Site
    off Leigh Road
    Worsley
    Manchester.
    N.G.R SD 737006

    Cost will be £4 per person per night as per usual arrangements - all of which goes to Scouts, not me!

    Also, if you do a search for "Middlewood" you will see pages & pages about the last few Meets that were held there.

    It's basically potatoes, onion, carrot, celery (optional) , plenty of corned beef, water, bisto, herbs if you have them and salt n pepper to taste.

    A long slow cook until the spuds start to disolve and that's it ;)

    Hi Firecrest, I've added you to the main list. Can't advise about public transport but I'm sure someone will be along who can.
