The-Cookies 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.

No arrests, no fines.
You must be really disappointed.
Not at all but a few details might be worth mentioning. It will save me logging on to motorhomingwild to find out.

In fact here you are, this is what you should have attached to your post.

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

113016 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 stayed out of his threads and campaigns and didnt really comment until the Mull thread. My suspicions of his motives also came into play when I discovered he wasnt a motorhomer and had started asking for money. This suspicion was further risen when he went to such lengths, threatening Phil and having all his posts removed because a few people started questioning him.

Surely he should have just come back and simply answered the doubters. It was almost like he had a lot to loose by people just questioning him. Just didnt feel right to me. 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.

No but he was discussing it and I think the thread was partly what led to him spitting his dummy out as people quite rightly told him to leave well alone. Knowing his reputation for going ahead and starting these campaigns (in his car) and taking direct action as he calls it I like many did not want any such action taken in Mull of all places.

We never got a chance to discuss it at length as he left but not before threatening Phil the forum owner which was way out of order.

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

747 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.

AND

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.
