Tish, tish!! Horny ain't allowed in Sidmouth, John. :0)

I was sitting in a bar in Sidmouth last night, having an orange juice and lemonade with some dear friends from Scotland..and Tigger was listening to 'Wichita Lineman' with a kind of lopsided grin on his face...

Still a beautiful day here..

I spent most of my week sitting in a bar in Sidmouth - but a different bar with a lot of people... and the weather was wonderful on Wednesday and Friday... but really dire for the rest of the week!

Opinions re campsite please....

If any vehicle movement at all was possible, we allowed it - but ONLY on the basis that once in, you stay. If you then take your car off, you don't get back in & go to the car park instead.

Quite a few have commented that this made the site safer for kids & greener (in both senses of the word) & maybe we should use this policy even in good weather....


Any thoughts?

Even in good weather, the provision of a good bus service and lousy parking in Sidmouth means that I rarely use my car. However, I would have liked to have used it to fetch a friend from Exeter and perhaps had an "awayday". I'm sure people have "good" reasons for trips. There was a dialysis patient one year...

But, you don't want to get involved in arguments so impose a re-entry fee of a pound donated to a suitable charity

Requesting comments about the campsite - brave man!

I see the point about vehicle movements, but it ain't always that simple. I would have liked to have made a run to a launderette (if Sidmouth has one!) to clean up some mud infested clothes (and it weren't just mud).
Apart from that, having a bus pass meant that I didn't feel much need to use my car - pretty much concur with Steve. However, in the circumstances, the restrictions were both necessary and reasonable.

But I would be lying if I said the mud didn't spoil my camping. I'm not blaming the organisers for the rain! But:

I was at the top (Causley Court) and getting to and from the bus stop was an expedition. I didn't visit the on-site catering because it was such a bind getting there and back, not helped by slipping up on my *rse in the mud on Tuesday night. Similarly I avoided coming back on the campsite during the day because of the unpleasantness getting back to the tent.
And, since I was stewarding, I needed to be a bit presentable when I got into town.

Just getting to the nearby loo block was a problem because it meant crossing a roadway constantly churned up by the service vehicles and always slippery. Then coming back into the tent with ankle deep mud, and it wasn't always mud - hard to see at night. Then once the tractors started operating the ruts became too deep for cars to use the roads, and held the water to keep things unpleasant for pedestrians even though it was beginning to dry out.

Similarly getting to the showers and fresh water was a long and dangerous trek, I slipped a number of times.

Thoughts
- Designate separate pedestrian routes and vehicle routes.
- Provide crossings where pedestrians and vehicle routes cross, with some solid surfaces so people can get to key facilities safely.
- Provide some taps nearer the top of the site so people don't have to carry heavy containers long distances on poor surfaces.

Finally, a round of applause for the camp site stewards. They had a difficult and often unpleasant job and did it cheerfully.

Malcolm

Comment re: car movements in reply to John Golightly on the older thread.

I have some good pictures of the campsite and Bulverton car park - just in case you need reminding how dry and smooth it was - they'll be on the web sometime this month.
