Campsite in Bracelands is several miles from Parkend - so not staggering distance if some of you are staying at Parkend. Two pubs in Parkend itself - the Fountain and the Woodman. Food at the Woodman is OK- never tried the Fountain.

There is also a campsite at Parkend but it's private -Civil Service Motoring Assocaition might be a possibility if you have any connection with that organisation.

I'm around that weekend, so may even put in an appearance for the morning at least as I live just a few miles away in Ross on Wye.

Question for the guide - is the Rising Sun the pub at Moseley Green?

Cheers

Carol

I stay at the CSMA place quite often thanks to family jobs. It's an ideal place if anyone in that line of work can join. Not only camping but cabins as well.
Any real ale fans will be interested to hear that the pub next to the site stocks Reverend James.

If those wanting to stay at the Fountain Inn bunk house drop me a PM i'll try and book us a dorm (numbers allowing), a link to it is in my previous post. Cost is £10 per night and bedding packs are available should you need one. Please state which night/nights you require a bed.

Cheers Mark.
