Its marvelous that you cant park at these locations now but people with quads and motorcross bikes can take over a mile of beach outside butlins with no marshalling or security and no police to stop anyone wandering on to the circuits , also cars and vans tearing up and down the prom where no vehicles are allowed.

I see that nobody parked close up to the height barrier (and blocked access as promised in the lead up to this action).

You must be really disappointed.
Phil the owner of Wild, has been doing a fantastic job for years, unfortunately, he has had more than his fair share of Trolls.
Seems to have settled down now!
A stand up Guy!

I have a soft spot for wildcamping.co.uk and Phil has worked hard to keep it all going for I suspect little reward. I have known Phil a long time and know nothing about this chap at all.
We cannot really argue about the truth of it now John because Andy demanded that every post in every thread he took part in was wiped from WC4MH otherwise he would take legal action against the Admin. Even his name had to be edited out.
We had some quite amusing posts whenever someone said 'that's handy', it came out as 'that's h****'. Of course members dreamt up loads of variations on the theme.

As far as I remember Andy Strangeways stated he had received some emails about motorhome parking on Mull and he asked if anyone else had had such problems. If so he offered to take up some action if there was a need. He did not say he was going to take action on Mull.
OK, your on - and its my first round in the pub (you can pay for the restaurant )
Do you think we can invite Barry? or is it a bit far North for him - the beer might not be to his 'continental' taste
Maybe I should have explained it better Geoff.
In places like Scarborough and Whitby for example, I did mean High Street retailers. They undoubtedly have lost out and will only notice it in the off season when it is very quiet. In fact, despite an orchestrated campaign in Scarborough (which the local newspaper was happy to publicise any downside of motorhomes) the business owners have been complaining about a downturn.
As for your experience in Corbridge, motorhomes DO overnight in that Car Park, despite the signage. You have to remember that not every sign is legal, plus if you arrive late, nobody knows you were there overnight.
You could have pulled into the Sports ground and had a night there, tucked away behind the Grandstand. The railway line is close but there are no overnight trains. It is further away from the Town but close to a very good Pub (The Dyvils) and an excellent Restaurant in the Railway Station building.
Please ask when you are next in my area Geoff.
