After a bit of discussion at the recent Achray meet it was decided to go for a North West meet in November. I have booked Forest Camp today, same place as last NW meet, The date is going to be 10, 11 and 12th of November.
Forest camp is situated in Cheshire near Delamere Forest near the junction of the A49 and A556.
Everyone is welcome and the cost will be £2.50 per person per night. There are toilets and showers available on site, we haven't got the same location as last time, but I will ensure we get a suitable area with room for tents and hammocks.
As before there are no ground fires allowed, except in proper fire circles/pits, but there are barrels available for altar fires. There is usually plenty of firewood available but the quality can be sketchy, pallets are ok but sometimes it is treated wood.
I will sort out a better map but here is a multi map link for now

Who is interested so we have some idea of numbers, not committing anything.
Any questions or suggestions post or PM , hope to see you there! ;)


Book it and they will come! :eek:

Just realised that it is Remembrance Sunday weekend, I will be disappearing for a couple of hours on Sunday morning(local Remembrance parade) and returning straight after. If anyone wants to attend a Remembrance service I will have spare seats and can give a lift.

It is looking to be a good meet already with a good mix of skills :D
Anyone is welcome to the meet for a visit or to stay, bushcrafter or not, even my wife has threatened to visit :yikes: there is plenty of camping space and the facilities aren't bad so digging sticks aren't necessary!

Can I put two probables down for this please? My Sister really fancies trying the bushcraft scene and would like to come with her partner to learn some new skills. Neither of them are total newbies or numpties
