Hi all, one of two of us down here in the tropical south have decided to try and get a bit of a camping trip together.

I found a campsite called Bracelands Camp Site , It is here on Google Maps.

It is a big site, they allow rallies & groups, and would be an ideal time to test your camping stuff a month or so before leafers at t' pit :)

There are A few attractions nearby including a steam railway! http://www.deanforestrailway.co.uk/

There should be enough B-roads, A-roads and motorways to suit whatever pace your landy travels at so please come along. I've tried to find somewhere that is sort of central and isn't a pain the backside to get to  :Dancing-Chilli1group:


I have an excellent fire pit made out of an old washing machine drum, which we will bring along, along with a barbecue.

With much enthusiasm I will start the list!

I love the smell of EP90 in the morning. It smells of .... Victory

Checked diary, it looks like I'll be in Scotland on Friday so it may not be workable.

Mick and Paula - would love to come but will put us down as just a possibility as we're going to War and Peace at the end of July and the 101 may not feel like a 300 mile round trip less than 2 weeks before that!

I'll pop a post up on LR4x4.com too, there are a few good chaps with leafers who I think might be interested.

Great stuff mick and paula, and gutting redwinch...  I'd love to go on a euroleafing trip next year if i've bought a house by then!


I'm also bringing a medium/large-ish barbecue so if the weathers nice we can all turn some sausages into charcoal fingers  fnky
