Had planned to see the New Year in at this beautiful spot, but 'man-flu' meant we had to delay. Stayed their a few days later and also enjoyed the wonderful vista on a crisp January morning. Only one other vehicle pulled up during the night, but didn't stay long. After our walk we returned to be greeted by some of the local gentry (around 1030), who were all very polite and friendly. A truly great spot........thank you jiffers.:)

Thanks, jiffers! Spent last night at this very lovely spot, all to myself. Good dongle signal, too, with both 3 and Vodafone, due to the proximity of a huge mast.
The car park is at White Hill, twenty yards back from the B3051. Turn sharp left up a short incline once you see a parking area on the right.
GPS: N 51.30586, W 1.26025

Yep great spot, you wouldnt even know it was there from the road. Very pleasant stay, good views etc. Even the group of 20 or so horse riders gave a good morning on the Saturday. Its the first stop in this clip

If you want to keep your own wildcamping places a secret and learn new ones from members who are not so selfish then you go ahead son.

You have not made any wildcamping posts in 3 months. My advice is do not tell anyone your tag if you meet them as they may not be very happy with you.

I am sorry for sounding so grumpy, I could have put it better but the basis of this site is to pass on useful info as well as gain it.

The more postings you make the sooner you will be a senior member (actually, I find the title a bit embarassing) and get all of the extra benefits that come with it. I will think of one in a minute.

There are only a handful of regular contributors out of the 8000+ membership, so most are gaining but not contributing. There was a brilliant wildcamping spot at Bamburgh which has been lost because wildcampers set up shop long term and annoyed the locals. It was worth 10 a night just for the view.

If you want somewhere to wildcamp in the cold dark icy north, I will be ready to assist.

Regards maingate

Not a problem - but you have expressed the fear that we all have. Too much exposure leads to too much usage and the attention of zealous council officials. We have lost too many good spots to 2m barriers because of overexposure.
I say nothing about *****s following us in and losing us our spots.

Hehehe, you don't have to go home. If they lock the forest up, I'm sure you can find somewhere :D
