For the safety and welfare of all PLEASE comply with the following:

  • Camp only at the individual pitches around the edge of the field – the central open areas are there for the use and enjoyment of all.
  • Once equipment has been delivered to individual camping pitches ALL vehicles are to be returned to the car parking area.
  • Do not dig fire pits – use altar fires or fire bowls. Do not dig wet pits.
  • Do not burn or bury rubbish – take it away or use dumpy bins provided.
  • Reduce noise after 8pm. Lights out and the site to be quiet by 10.30 pm.
  • To avoid upsetting nearby livestock no loud noises or fireworks permitted.
  • Only use wood taken from the storage area or dead wood picked up from the ground – never from live trees. Use axes and saws responsibly.
  • Stay on the path alongside the river and only use the river for activities under Leader Supervision. The river is not to be crossed as the far side is private property. Keep well clear of the old river sluice – DANGER
