       Next Weekend Camping  Meet :  Hayfield Lakes Auckley  27th-30th May


Auckley is a pleasant village which stands beside the River Torne.  It lies approximately 5 miles from the town of Doncaster, but is set in rural surroundings and there is a sense of community amongst the residents.  Anyone who loves the countryside has the choice of walking a number of public footpaths through open countryside, and there are a number of venues in the village where residents are able to meet,

e.g. the local public house (Eagle and Child), the Anglican Church and Methodist Chapel. The village has a GP Surgery, a Pharmacy, a local shop, schools, Public Houses and hot food takeaways

(From Local Ghost Trails, Clive Kristen)

Auckley has been home to a famous Grey Lady apparition who has made appearances at the rear of crowds, particularly at weddings and christenings for more than three hundred years. The story goes that she was the youngest daughter of a local chap who kept her as little more than a servant. She had little opportunity to meet men herself and so took solace in the happiness of others, and it soon became a custom at feast days to set a place for the Grey Lady and a special toast was made:-

“We wish thee joy on this our celebration.
Come sit thee down and take a glass of wine.
And if you sup in our felicitation,
The hour is blest as blessed you may be"

Blidworth 3rd-5th June

Blidworth is a village and approximately five miles east of Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, England. Its history can be traced back to the 10th century, although many of the current houses were built in the first half of the 20th century to provide housing for workers at Blidworth Colliery (1926-1989).

According to legend, Will Scarlet is buried in the churchyard of the Church of St. Mary of the Purification. An unmarked grave stands near the iron gates of the churchyard, formed from the original apex of the church tower and other assorted stones, and is generally attributed to the outlaw. As outlaws were not generally buried in churchyards, though, it is more likely that, if he existed, Will Scarlet was buried in one of the much older graves to be found on the same hillside within the boundaries of Sherwood Forest.

Other local legends suggest that Blidworth was the birthplace of Maid Marian, although there is little or no evidence to support these claims.

On the outskirts of the village of Blidworth, on farmlands, lies a stone known locally as the Druid Stone (Grid Reference: SK5787-558), a pillar of cemented glacial gravel standing on a base of theNottingham Castle rock formation (Bunter Pebble Beds). This monumental object is 14 ft high, 84 ft around the base and has a hollow centre large enough for a man to pass through.

Stewards 2016

The camping diary has been updated again, with the latest stewards for upcoming meets in 2016, as you can see we still have a number of  weekends that still require stewards.

We can now confirm  that Aukley will go ahead on the 27th-30th May along with Blidworth and Bakewell meets thanks to Stewards coming forward to support.

As previously communicated we do not want to cancel any meets but without the support of stewards we may have to look at cancelling some weekends, so please if you can spare some time over a weekend to steward a meet let us know, if work is an issue on the Friday and you cannot arrive until after 3pm we can look at support until you arrive.

If you are able to offer support please contact Sue Beck so that we all can enjoy a fun filled calendar.
