    Nope, it's about 7 miles

    Nearest campsite to there I would have thought would be Willesley which is about 5 miles away. However, it still doesn't seem fair.. it looks closer to the south coast than it does to edinburgh!

    I like the idea of something on the welsh border.. it'd be nice to find somewhere where noone has been before. Also easy access from the north and south by the M6

    Welsh borders is pretty bad for train connections which would probably be how I'd be travelling if I was to attend

    This bit of info might prove a bit of an issue
    The Toilets and HQ Building are wired for electric lights, but you must provide your own generator.

    Sounds like it Pete - when I last camped there (1990s) they provided you with one I think

    Wales is bad for trains, other than the north and south coastal strips. If you want to go from South Wales to North Wales via train, you have to go via Shrewsbury.

    Anyway, Welsh campsites are all online: www.scoutswales.org.uk/support/campsites
