Dalesbridge camping field
« on: April 21, 2016, 09:49:13 am »
For those of you attending Eurospeleo 2016 but not familiar with The Dalesbridge Centre I thought I'd pop this photo up taken yesterday evening.

It's a beautiful spot, as is the whole area and looked glorious in the evening sunshine.

I consider Dalesbridge's camping fields  to be as well drained if not better drained than any of the surrounding area. They are however very flat so when saturated they can take a couple of days to dry off. It does occasionally rain in the Dales :(

I have been assured by the organisers of Eurospeleo that strategies and infrastructure will be in place to mitigate against any unfortunate occurrence of bad weather. Although I am yet to hear as to what that will exactly involve.

I wasnt complaining about the field, when I was there in 2011 there was monsoon rain for a few days and everything in the area was flooded.

Are we likely to be tight for camping space? My tent isn't exactly small so I'd have to find someone to borrow a smaller one off....

Should be fine .... I reckon most cavers have pretty small tents, and there are some large fields to fill!
