In need of TLC

We used the site as a stopover on a longer holiday, very glad it was no longer. The CL sig was almosr totally obscured by a 'Support the NHS sticker' - not a very safe idea! The access drive is narrow betweenan old greenhouse and the first pitch and bends sharply. Despite being instructed in our email to pitch on a particular plot this was occupied when we arrived by what looked like a caravan in the process of restoration. Having sought out the owner we were directed to a narrow unnumbered pitch alongside the access road. Despite only having a fairly small 'van we would have struggled to site it without a motor-mover and even then we had to trim over-hanging branches so as not to damage the roof. We then had to park in a small gap on the other side of the road so narrow we could open only one door of the car. The pitch was surrounded by overgrown grass and nettles and had no hook-up. We had to borrow an extension hook-up to join to ours to access a socket across the access road so every vehicle passing us drove over our cable. We never found the toilet or shower but judging by the rubbish,broken down trailer and generally run down state of the site we wouldn't have used it! There is a great view of what appear to be lorry containers used as changing rooms on the adjacent sports field. It's a shame as this site could be very nice and a great asset with the new RHS Garden openimng only a few miles away and its easy access to the M6/M62 but it is woefully in need of some attention and updating. I'm surprised that the Club considers the elctrical arrangements to be acceptable.
