SITE DETAILS

This will be a camping event to be held on a grass rally field at a caravan site very near to Carsington Water. It will be also be the celebration of the Boating Groups 50th Anniversary. Entertainment will include a “Hog Roast”, Quiz Nights, Raffle, Outdoor Games, Childrens crafts and many other events.

The site is within easy reach of the Carsington Water Activity Centre where you can launch your own water craft (Sailing Boats, Canoes, Windsurfers, Paddleboards) and hire bikes (there are a number of trails around the water). Fly fishing for trout is available for those who might wish to catch their own food. The visitors centre has a restaurant and craft shops.

The Boating Group AGM will be held on the Saturday afternoon (1st May 2021) followed by the Boating Group 50th Anniversary Hog Roast Celebrastion on Saturday evening.

DIRECTIONS

It is highly recommended that you approach the site along the A6 from Belper (M1/A38) AND NOT from the Sheffield/Matlock direction as this involves a very steep hill and sharp bends.

A6 at Belper (from M1/A38) take the A517 west toward Hulland Ward. Turn right for Hognaston then right onto the Hognaston Bypass. The site is on the RH side 200 yards past the entrance to Carsington Watersports Centre.

BOOKING

Please contact Margaret to book your pitch.

A booking form can be found in the Buccaneer or download it from the members area of the website.

Cheques payable to CCC Boating Group Section.
