    The camp field is big enough for at least 4 independent patrol camps which could be quite separate from each other and each of these patrol area’s has a picnic table seating 6 people. There is usually a reasonable stock of wood on site with more to be collected nearby and a water tap which delivers non drinking water. On the plateau containing the camp building there is a campfire circle big enough to seat 20 or 30 people.

    The camp building The camp building contains very basic indoor facilities
    - Hall Contains
    - Table and Chairs
    - Sleeping Mats
    - Multifuel Stove
    - Kitchen
    - 6 Ring/Oven LPG Cooker
    - Sink
    - Filtered Drinking Water Tap
    - Bunk Room 1
    - For 4 Persons
    - Bunk Room 2
    - For 2 Persons
    - Toilet
    - 3 Cubicles/Wash Basin Plus 1 urinal

    The Multifuel stove burns wood and smokeless solid fuel (not supplied)
    The Toilets and HQ Building are wired for electric lights, but you must provide your own generator.

    I think I'm going to have to miss this one, I went to Wales 3 times last year and have a holiday lined up there in the Summer, Plus I am already struggling to fit in all the other Scout Camps I'm supposed to be doing this year

    I'm not sure if I can make the whole weekend, but it's a stone's throw from my house, so I think I'll have to at least pop down for a visit! I'll confirm soon though.

    Now that street view is up for the whole uk we might as well make the most of it!

    http://www.google.co.uk/maps/ms?ie=U...,93.57,,0,4.21

    I presume that is the carpark for the campsite in the background. Looks like it's halfway up a hill!
