Welcome to North Wood 2017 :)





Spring Bluebell meet

This is my favourite meet of the year, its when the woodland is awash with millions of bluebells. :) any activity with be kept to a minimum on this meet to conserve the display. however I still aim to collect and process wood for the communal fire, any help will be most welcome.

Although these meets are very relaxed and informal with no real agenda, if anyone attending does need instruction or advice on a particular aspect then please ask either here or at the meet. Our regulars have a wealth of combined knowledge backed up with practical experience, and would be only too happy to share this with you.

We will aim to pitch on the main middle site, this may be updated nearer the time. Parking will be again on CP2. However if ground conditions dictate, just offload at the entrance path to the woods ( see map link below ) and return vehicles to CP1 at the farm, I will update this nearer the time if necessary.

Collecting wind blown and dead standing is allowed this meet if you prefer to have your own small fire, live wood is to remain untouched.

Again I intend to temporarily up the pitch fee's from £5 per night to £6 for a maximum of two nights per meet.
This is to replace essential communal items and for the occasional hire of power tools such as a brush cutter to clear pitches and enable more pitch choice.

As before, early get in / extra days may be available if enough interest is shown :)

It would be helpful if any TBC's could be firmed up nearer the time to assess a meets viability, thanks.

Im now confirmed as work have granted the leave, this will likely be my first outing with my newly bought Tarp and Hammock... Having never uses a hammock in anger, I will try and get out with it before this and will bring stuff im more used to as a backup.... But some guidance on the day would be appreciated.


Edit: Updated list

very kind offer, thank you. :) but on this meet we keep the disruption to minimum to enjoy the bluebells. As for your hammock, there will be lots of advice should you want it and good idea to bring an alternative. :)
