Thank you Martin, appreciate all your comments and the group / weekly booking idea - nice.
Because for those who dont want to break the law by illegal wild camping, there is precious little available. A managed site that offers 99% of the same experience, would do well.
For those that like their bushcraft organised & can or are prepared to pay, then this sort of thing sounds right up their alley...
Hmmm, would the people using your bushcraft facilities be allowed to wander out side the alloted area ?.........What is the woodland managed for exactly, the timber industry, hunting ?
And Martyn tooWould the campfire not be adequate?

Unfortunately fire isn't fabulous- you're talking about a largish, sodden mass, which a cover would burn off leaving the contents for the consideration of everyone around the fire. Personally I'd feel uncomfortable about both this and cooking on the fire subsequently and I wouldn't dream of exposing the kind and helpful chaps from the meets that I've been to, to the potential embaressment. A waste fire is the only way really and it has to burn a fair time, with a fair amount of heat, to fully dispose of used sanitary wear.
Scavenging animals are likely to dig for such a pungent blood smell if buried and if you're considering a toilet, you'll make yourself much more attractive to family groups by suppyling a disposal bin. I hope this helps and hasn't offended
Exactly, trespass is a civil tort and breaching a byelaw is not "illegal".
Why not? Bylaws are created under statutes and the breach of the statute is illegal. They can be prosecuted in a magistrates court and leave you with a criminal conviction. Is that illegal enough?
