    Plenty in the CCS write-up HERE.

    A taster, so to speak …

    Don’t let that bother you for one minute. You’d be made very welcome as someone who braved the Channel and Brexit obstacles to get here.

    Great images and some rare lamps too. Looks like a good turn out, I wish I could have been there.

    I did have a small light-up at the rally we were at but neither of us had remembered to bring a camera, to add to our dismay, the management's smartphone had a flat battery which refused to charge from any of the three power points available.

    So does anyone know how many members attended this meeting?
    I see a field full of cumfy campervans, but also some caravans and quite a few tents (and a very nice red VW T3 California :thumbup:), so it looks like quite a crowd.

    That picture of the stove with all the blue flames is awesome :D

    @Tony Press
    No-one from overseas this year, but one chap (Dean on CCS) travelled from the south of England by bus (four changes). Geordie Mike’s primary interest is cast iron woodworking machinery from the USA and he drove from Newcastle to collect a bandsaw in Southampton, then stopped off at Newark for a couple of nights on his way back. Jeremy (@X246A) came from Norfolk, which is quite a haul.

    @GuidoK
    As to numbers attending Ross @spiritburner told me that it was close to a record number this year. Counting campervans in photographs is deceptive because these …

    … were a separate rally of proud campervan owners, many of whom drifted over to see what we were up to. I don’t think those I spoke with were ready to swap fitted kitchens and electric lighting for paraffin lamps and stoves!

    Great pictures again:thumbup:
    I'm not a collector at all but I think it's great when people really are into their hobby. All the displays they made look awesome. Quite an interesting bunch of people:).
    Tilley and Bialaddin seem to be the favorite among the british:mrgreen:
