    Re: Stoneleigh

    I know what Hugh was feeling like. I left Padstow at 0330. Bodmin Moor and Exmoor were below zero with ice starting to form on the inside of Moll's screen. I was frozen as the heater was only just...

    Just had to nip to Newhaven with a family issue. I hope to get back to Padstow in time to set off for Stoneleigh. I was tempted to take mum back home in the Marlin and then set off for Stoneleigh...

    Hi Pete. I'd love to be there but I have the two family members in their nineties staying with us. Hard work but they need looking after. Have fun.

    We are allowed on to the show ground after 1200 on the Saturday. I normally get there mid afternoon Saturday which gives me plenty of time to wrestle with the miles of independently-minded GRP poles...

    Re: Stoneleigh

    Yup. It looks like most cars will fit. There possibly won't be room for those of us that normally camp on the stand though. Have any other camping souls thought where the MOC will make our camp? I...

    Re: Stoneleigh

    I reckon you are correct Pete
    I can't remember a kerb on that's little road. It was mostly a parking area for the trade stands vans. Yup, that's the way in.

    Re: Stoneleigh

    Just had a look at the new map. I remember the stalls on 63. It is not a very big area and the road is packed each day. Clearly we will not be able to camp there.
