No Idea....After Breakfast and Chat??? Send me a text with your ETM on the day and we'll see. Looks like there might be a road group and a dirt group.

Just had a long conversation with David Brookes from Northumberland CC this morning...The map works, but has to be accessed through the actual webpage. Try

www.northumberland.gov.uk

scroll to the bottom to 'usefull quick links' and find 'Public rights of Way' in the right hand column.

This is supposed to be the definitive map of the council. Have a look and see what you think.

Fritz,

I had a brief look at the map and am rather disappointed about the amount of BOATs in Northumberland....But there are some not far from Allenheads that look promising - around and in Slayley Forrest.

The field is the one indicated by the farmer half a mile away. Pretty sure it's right. I should be there by 4PM on Friday and will confirm it, again...before I pitch my tent.

If you guys arrive early, Just double check with Ann and Phil at the pub as to which field exactly is the 'Triangle Field'.

It's frequently used for camping. Just hope it's big enough for this huge turnout!! 26 registered participants!

Jens
