The rain finally relented at around 3am and the forecast for today and the rest of the weekend is much improved. We should hit a dizzying height of 20°C. Today will be windy but we’re hoping that will help dry out the ground. The tented campsites are in good condition. We’re planning to open the mixed camping field at 10am which is also in good condition. The entrance for mixed camping is located at the Junction of Blind Lane, Frith Lane and Pricketts Hill.
