    There will be no charge for camping on the Saturday night before the comp on the Sunday.

    As there is livestock on the site we do have to impose a few pleases :)

    Please keep any dogs under full control at all times.
    Please do not use open fires. Disposable BBQ's are O.K. as are camping stoves.
    Please keep the area tidy.
    Please do not camp on the Golf Course :D
    No sheep in the tents :eek:

    There is no water supply on site so you will have to bring your own supply. We will endeavour to have some water available but it won't be a never ending supply.

    Ray,

    I notice that you have failed to mention to our visitors that the West Pennine Moors are frequented by "The mad sheep monster" from Blackburn. Often to be found parking a small blue Nissan prior to the donning of an old sheep fleece and rounding up some likely victims for his strange rituals.

    I believe the monster responds favorably to the offer of some old German gun parts, so a bag full of old gun bits can be left as an offering outside your tent. This should prevent any more "incidents."

    "Sheep Monster"of West Pennine Moors

    This sheep monster is it reputed to live under a certain bridge in the vicinity of the West Pennine Moors ? the legend of the sheep monster has long been told to the local inhabitants children.Never to venture out on the moor after dark and only during the day when part of a group Any of our members who doubt the story should get in touch with our friend Andyj from Tawd Vale Club it is said albeit in hushed tones that Andy has caught a glimps of of this creature on camcorder whilst the beast was peeping from under the bridge.Please remember i never said this Cheers Alan 1946......

    It is true, this quick glimpse was captured before it dissapeared into darkness muttering something about leather washers and springs

    So as not to confuse our visitors it would be best to refer to the moor by its proper title, The West Pennine Moor. Previously people have asked for directions to Rivington when they have been within a stone s throw of the ground and have been directed, quite rightly, to the other side of Bolton.:eek::mad:

    Nearest Postcode:
    Tower Dr, Turton, Bolton BL7 0HG, See post re-road closure.

    Map Ref:
    Outdoor range @53.631916,-2.413387.

    Seeing as I am camping with our guests on Saturday night Al, I will of course be doing the usual patrol of the camps perimeter armed with a large wooden mallet a lively terrier and a blunderbuss. In the event of discovering said beast, at least this time i will hopefully be able to wound it before it has its wicked way. Bye the way, have you checked the moon phase Al?
