    I went to the Lake District a couple of years ago and stayed for the best part of a week in a lane just outside Keswick for the Mountain Music Festival. I think i the POI is called Portinscale. It was a fabulous spot - an easy stroll into town - and I'd go there again like a shot but I heard that the local council were trying to stop wildcamping there. Last I saw, it's still open but I just didn't want to raise your hopes if it had been closed. Someone may know for sure.
    That's really helpful, thank-you. I will look it up.
    I am probably down your way around Easter, might go to Bimble (Solar retailer) near Lewes as well as visit Parents in Chichester.

    Have a look at the John Ruskin School in Coniston or the Coniston Football Club. I think the school operate an honesty box type thing during school holidays. The footy club might want a few quid but there are showers etc.

    Cheers

    An easy one for the south lakes is on the Barrow coast road out of Ulverston at Bardsea, just as the road joins the coast loads of parking places with a good view across the bay (not on POI) and the walk up hode hill to the lighthouse style monument is worth the walk. Birkrigg common is a nice stop as well with it's stone circle.

    The Lakes are not that Far and would be a nice tester for the New old van I feel

    Looks like this could be the one, thanks Herman

    Re: Portinscale, this is not correct. There is an 'advisory' notice to discourage overnight parking ...
    Remember - POI additions and updates can be sent by email to POI@wildcamping.co.uk
