    CR Blaenavon 2 (Torfaen) - Blorenge Hill - Van Attacked



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Hi - Just thought we would share our recent experience with overnighting on the Rural Car Park at Blaenavon 2 (Torfaen) next to Blorenge Hill and the masts (not the lake car park)

    We had been parked up in the car park on the night of Thursday 10th May 2018, being respectable etc. not obstructing anything or taking too much room up.

    We were the only campers on this car park but we found the following morning, there were about 4 campers on the lake car park just down the road

    Anyway we were woken around 5:30am by a car revving and blasting the horn near to us. We thought we are not going to rise to this and ignored it until there was a loud thud on the side of the camper van. Side window roller blind soon shot down and we both (Hubby and I) peered out the van to see a chap wearing a Russian type fold down ear flapped hat getting into the drivers side of a Silver BMW reg: X772 DBL. The chap gave no expression after he had saw us looking at him.

    He then reversed slowly into the middle of the car park ready to drive away but there was a metal spiky pump type object stuck between his drivers side wheel and wheel arch which made a dragging sound. He then drove forwards and backwards which dislodged the object and then drove to the opening of the car park but his car was still making a dragging sound. He then reversed again before leaving the car park.

    We found a white round tub thing near the side of the van which must of been the item he had launched at our van

    We were baffled as to the point of it all and his expression gave nothing away. Was it that he launched the tub in temper because something was wrong with his car or that he didn't like wild campers or was it that he was 'out of it' and maybe on 'something' or still drunk from the night before!

    There only appeared to be him in the car with no dog - Unsure if he had arrived late at night and slept in his car or if he had arrived at 5:30 in the morning!

    Luckily the van wasn't damaged but it was sooooo bizarre

    Well so long as You’re both ok, & there wasn’t any damage to your van it appears that you only lost a cpl of hours sleep thank heavens,
    How blinking annoying & Unsettling for you though.
    Thankfuly thease kinda incidences are very few n far between, Imust be one of the very lucky ones as I’ve Never encounterd any Hostilities or confrontation, but it’s just an odds game, Look how many cars go to a Supermarket everyday & Then look how many get damaged!. (Not the point, & of Little Comfort But —-)
    It’s good that you got the Reg though, & Again Thank Heavens Your both ok.

    I had a look for that registration but it was not found.

    If you are sure then they were false number plates

    Hi - Thank you for that - Hmmmm very interesting in deed, explains a lot - Maybe the metal object had fallen off the car and the horn blasting was a bit sporadic - Thank you
