I'm interested, but need to make certain about dates before i book anything. Do i just stroll up with a sleeping bag and tarp or is there something else i'd need to do?

We've decided to cancel the Winter Moot for a variety of reasons. Sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment. Everyone that has paid will get a full refund by the end of today.

We will be hosting a WinterMoot in early 2019 which should give you all plenty of time to prepare :D

It would be nice to not have to build in two extra days of travelling in order to get to a Moot...

If you actually look at a map of the UK, Whalley in Lancashire is about the middle if you ignore the off shore stuff.

And perchance is that anywhere in your localle?

If you are on about winter moot shoot for the east coast. Less wind rain, andif you are lucky enough to get snow, from the west it will be less severe, and if the airs blowing from the east you are likely to get the good stuff first. Aberdeen?

I travel all over the country and even Europe and Scandinavia with my work. I based my locale on that fact as I may be working in Scotland one day, Wales the next.

Unsurprisingly when I decided where to base myself I chose a spot roughly in the geographic centre, close to a motorway with links North, South, East and West. Not very coincidentally then, that is perchance not far from my locale.

As for a Winter Moot, surely the idea is to experience Winter conditions? I travel North or to the Arctic to do that normally but I understand that soft southerners think that the Midlands is too far North.

I don't know about winter conditions wayland, if you want a bit of rain and wind head for Capel curig, but I don't think that's what is desired. Any atlantic rainstorm the west coast gets, any arctic blast the east coast gets.

Middle of the country east coast hull? Very nice area and very different scenery to Merther mawr.

Remember the storms that cam happen from the west, I think that these would not be enjoyable.

I've wanted to see a moot for sometime now, shame it's cancelled. That being said, I've also wanted to go to torm which is close and have also never been :sorry:.

Glad to see Steve has organised an extended Northwood meet its without doubt the best location/meet I've been to so far, especially the winter months.
