Britchcombe Farm, Uffington - spring camping break (part 1)
A weekend in Oxfordshire
(Photos/words © urban75, 17th-18th April, 2010)
It started off as a few people going camping trip but ended up as a near-mini-festival, with nearly 30 of us setting up camp in a lovely site in south England.
Here's some of the photos.
A quick pint or two at the Queens Tap opposite Swindon station.
Heading for our lift.
Accommodation in the van was a little bit 'intimate'.
One man. One tent.
The camp site at Britchcombe Farm, Uffington was fantastic and we had loads of space to accommodate the urban crew.
The farmhouse also did cream teas.

Sunset over Oxfordshire.
The fire is underway, surrounded by a pile of spuds ready for baking. They were all eaten by the end of the night.

It was cold. Chuffin' cold!
In the kitchen next morning.
Looking towards White Horse Hill. With the sky free of aircraft because of the Icelandic volcanic ash, there's not a single vapour trail to be seen in the perfect blue sky.
Around the camp site.
This bastard thing cock-a-bloody-do'd from about 3.30am onwards.

It's still a working farm, and you're allowed to wander around some areas.
The weather was sensationally good for April - there was barely a cloud in the sky all day. Woohoo!
