Now back home. I managed 2 nights and got completely soaked through . The grass in the field hasn't been cut or grazed and is up to 12" long so even when it stopped raining and the sun came out briefly your feet and legs got a soaking just walking a few yards. If you are tempted to brave the weather, It's more suitable for campervans and caravans. Tents should be very, very sturdy with a porch area and really tough strong pegs hammered well in. The wind is blowing like crazy and last night I was concerned for my safety the way the nearby trees were bending. My crappy little tent was not suitable for this I thought I was gonna take off! but being a fat bastard and the additional ballast from the small lake in the middle of the tent I survived! Oh yrs and bring WELLIES, several towels and plenty of changes of footwear/socks - I got through 6 soaked pairs yesterday! I'm aching all over ...
