Hi All,

I think we all agreed we have some what out growing the Buxton site,
so if we stand any chance of finding somewhere else between now and next year I thought it would be good to see if anyone out there has any ideas on a new location?

please add any locations or ideas below.

Thanks

Happy to do a bit of research on suitable

Here’s my starter for ten :-

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/travel/destinations/europe/united-kingdom/articles/best-mountain-campsites/

Most will be unsuitable but I don’t mind contacting each one to. See what might be able to be offered in terms of a meeting hall, dry standing for whooping great big mast, etc

Anybody got any thoughts as to where in the country would be most suitable?

Somewhere within easy reach of a railway station would be handy for those of us who don't have their own transport.

I would think mid country would be fair to allow everyone the same sort of travel distance, sadly this could be the most difficult bit to full fill

Ok, latest update on the Bash
Still looking for another location but thought we could always fall back on Buxton, however after
looking at re booking Brandside I got this message

Bookings
PLEASE NOTE
NO BOOKINGS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
DURING RENOVATIONS OF THE HALL

Seems they are doing the old place up, it did need it but hope its still afordable if no substitute is found.
Will keep you all updated as and when we find out anything new, fingers crossed Smile
Al

Theres always Tims place in Gettysburg Wink
