  1. Visited this site yesterday. Very nicely done!

    Lots of camping opportunities about, especially if you don’t mind stomping down a bit of bracken. Tank was about 1/5 full. Not a bad result considering that water has all been collected in summer.

  2. The plan is to slash some tent sites when we can get in with the slasher.

    Try and make them either off the access track or further on from the tank, out of the wind
