Those two water containers look well useful. Just post 'em down to Sheffield would you :)

BTW: I posted the grid ref of the camping spot below your comment on ma blog, in case you needed it.

Refund the postage? ;-)

Yep, got that Tony, thanks, looks perfect. Makes me feel quite relaxed about my first day now, knowing where I'm going to pitch that night. Quite excited!
