About the Site

The site is a functioning scout camp, we are lucky enough to have built a great relationship with the warden and are pretty much given free reign.

There are 10,000 standing Tree’s majority Oak although there are birch and beech on the site as well as a few others.

There is a VERY large field that can be used for tents etc. this is flanked by woods on both sides. Also at the bottom of the field is another wooded area ALL of which is scout land. The boundary on the left (looking down the field with Martin Lodge behind you) is the stream. On the right the boundary is the road that runs towards the garden centre. At the bottom the boundary is where the rail track meet the Motorway. The site as a whole covers 54 acres, so there is no issue with space.

There is a fully functional Shower block with 3 electric showers, sinks, urinals and 5 toilets. There is also access to drinking water on the site.

There are a few rules that need to be followed to allow us all to have a good time without damaging the relationship that we have built Please take a few mins to read through this post to familiarise yourselves as failure to adhere to these rules may mean you being asked to leave the site

Thanks in advance

*All litter must be removed from site, there is NO site bin so if you brought it with you take it out or burn it please (not whilst others are cooking) Yes this is on here twice as the last 2 meets I have ended up with a lot of rubbish left on site which I then have to shift…. This is NOT acceptable if you bring it you shift it.

wooo hoooo

That should be epic, do you want us to bring anything mate?

Dave
Maby if we all brought some coal we would be able to forge all day and some of the night. If mad dave comes he could bring his tram track for a spare anvul. A cople of spare hammers would be usful as would some bits of scrap for making things.Also gloves and clothes that won't burn easily, safety glasses, hack saws all these things would help but i should have enougth stuff anyway. The extrs things will just mean more peple can have a go and wont have to wait as long for ther turn, oh wire brushes,grips,sand paper,a bucket,only if pratical for people to bring. Dont go luging bags of coal about as we could always drive to the shop. This camp will be a rewarding one and i am looking forward to it, i have a few projects i want to do and finish off. I think mad dave wants to have a go at making fire stells and alan wants a gypsy kettle iron. If anybody wants to make a tomahawk head bring an old hammer.:) ...
