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.

Im presuming that the wardens have no problems with us using Hammocks??

Matt, Can I get the recipe for that lovely "lobby" you and Nat cooked at LLangollen??

Sorry for all the questions. I have done a search and not found that much info ,some pages are no longer available: http://www.bushcraftuk.com/forum/showpost.php?p=281888&postcount=7
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.
