Lack of Interest

We have just spent one week here and in the main the cl is ok. However there does seem to be a lack of interest from the owners. Signs of TLC were lacking There was no answer to the door on arrival so we just chose one of the 7 pitches and set up. The site is slightly sloping and pitches offer hard standing but even so this does not prevent the site holding water. We had one night of constant rain and the next morning the 3 pitches down the side of the field had filled with water to various amounts. The site entrance hard core surface being worn and hollow was full of water. Nothing to serious, but not difficult to put right. There were no signs as to where to empty grey water so it was either down the Elsan point or in the hedge bottom. The new toilet/shower block doesn't seem to have priority to finish it any more, it is nowhere near completion and not having any guttering the runoff water from the roof flooded the pitch near to it. The grass between pitches was on the long side. The toilets were good and heated but tell tale signs of cobwebs and dirty old mop and water told a story. Some tiles dropped off the shower wall and the shower was closed temporarily, there was however another shower. There is daytime road noise from the nearby 'B' road but it is quiet overnight. The distant views of Wenlock Edge are beautiful and some trees at the bottom of the site have been removed to open up the view but the scar marks left by their removal have not been repaired, which again with a covering of top soil and seed is not to difficult. The site directions are very easy. The main road from Much Wenlock to Church Stretton, surprisingly does not have a bus route so the location may not be convenient for MH’s. The ‘7’ site pitches were full most of the week so there is quite an income to the owners from this evidence at £15 per night and not £13 as on the club website. I’m not sure why the need for a new shower block, but plans has come to a stop and this was mentioned in a site report of 2 years ago. I did meet the owner very briefly when paying on the day of departure, the emphasis on the word briefly. I had to pay by handing the payment through the window and words were of a minimum and the window was shut. This cl has all the facilities and the location is very central to this beautiful area. It was such a pity, it could have been much better with very little effort.
