    Yep! That's right. We passed it yesterday. We wondered if speeding was involved. Probably never find out.
  2. We stayed at White Beach site at Kessingland. Had trouble with our 12volt in the caravan. Wardens were as good as a chocolate fireguard. A kind gentleman next to us helped us. They were cutting the grass at all hours, toilet block not quite up to standard, and if you wanted a "sea view" had to be best mates with wardens. We asked for one but got told no, although there were pitches free all week. Was a while ago so hopefully things have changed.
  3. A1 delays following accident between Grantham and Stamford Updated: 11:29, 07 August 2019 An overturned car and caravan are causing long delays on the A1 southbound. The accident happened at about 7am just north of Colsterworth and emergency services attended. Traffic backed from the site at Little Ponton, back to the A607 junction of the Grantham by-pass. Photo: Highways England Delays exceeding 30 minutes were experienced by commuters. However, by 10am, AA Roadwatch said the delay was down to 24 minutes. Photo: Highways England Average speeds, the AA reported, were down to 5mph. At the site, the caravan could be seen upturned in a hedge bottom. Behind it appeared to be an upturned car as well. An ambulance was later seen heading south on the A1. Near the sceme of the accident at Little Ponton. (14894264) However, as yet there are no reports as to how serious any injuries may be. This latest incident adds to a recent spate of accidents on the A1 between Grantham and Stamford. On Friday, the busy stretch of road experienced three accidents within 24 hours, plus a van fire. They all caused a series of delay Hope nobody was hurt.
  4. Are you still in Stamford Paul? Just seen ,in Leicestershire. Don't come by our house, our caravan is a bit grubby...... If we still had our lunar, might be a totally different matter.
  5. Magic Ancell! Sounds idyllic!
  6. Went to Great Yarmouth last week. Very windy and sea a but rough. Hubby was hoping for a different fish, bass, ray or hound. No chance, just two whiting which went back to grow into a bigger size. Bait was squid, herring or sardines. Off to Allonby, Cumbria next month, so hopefully fingers crossed there will be fish in the sea!
  7. Fasten everything down! Bit of plifering goes on! But it's a lovely site.
  8. Good luck. When we bought our first caravan, a 1982 sprite musketeer, where we bought it from near Weston Super Mare, the package included a two hour towing drive, which was excellent for my hubby. A brilliant idea, but that was a long time ago.
  9. My friend has an insignia, it's top of the range model, hatchback, diesel, 2 litre, 2009 plate, and he loves it. Says it good on fuel consumption, he gets about 38 to gallon, has good tug. . He tows at 87%..
  10. it would take us months to take everything out of our caravan, it's not moved for years, it's a cupboard on wheels
  11. Nice fish! Hubby used to fish Rutland water, he did very well. It's expensive to get an annual ticket, over £500. Such a lovely reservoir. You can fish in total peace and quiet. Ireland is our next big fishing trip.
  12. Went to Weybourne Norfolk on Monday, a fab day on the beach, a few fishing and all catching. Had 20 🐟altogether, dabs, bass and a weaver fish. Happy days. Stopped off at Holt on the way home and picked up a Cromer crab. for tea.
  13. It's a shame, I liked Touring and Tenting, but I don't do Facebook, the club forum isn't one I particularly like, just personal. Haven't caravanned since 2011. It's just not our hobby anymore.
