It’s a Wild Life in Austwick

Wood End Farm, Austwick

17 – 20 May 2018

Thank you to the North East Lancashire District Association (NELDA) for hosting this meet. MAS Northern always has a wonderful time in this superb walking area of the Yorkshire Dales. Yorkshire Three Peaks nearby, Crummockdale and the blooming marvellous display of spring colour from the spring flowers up in the meadow behind the site.

Never can we tire of  camping at this wonderful site.

And, just a little change of scenery from our usual galleries of walking, here’s some wilder life.

And, yes, a walk!

Entertainment, MAS Northern style

Camping rallies are renowned for their organised entertainment. At Mountain Activity Section Northern, we’re not.

Your MAS days will be spent chatting to your heart’s content with others on a group walk (or not, if that’s what you choose).

At an MAS Northern evening, we enjoy a wild life and you will likely:

Location, location, location

At MAS Northern, we organise camping meets from spring through autumn in Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire. Sometimes you’ll find us in northern Wales and Scotland too. Invigorating, inspiring, fresh. Great outdoors activity heaven.

Our meets are usually held in green fields with a beautiful countryside view. These sites offer basic facilities: fresh water, and disposal for chemical toilet and grey waste. Your own sanitation is almost always necessary. Occasionally (but not often), our sites will have limited electric hook-up, toilets or showers.

 

We welcome caravans, motorhomes/campervans, trailer tents and tents.

We offer some of the most inexpensive camping available and you’re guaranteed a friendly welcome. All members of the Camping and Caravanning Club are welcome to attend our Mountain Activity Section meets (please bring your membership cards).

Group cycle rides for August meets

Our Mountain Activity Section members are an active outdoorsy lot. As well as walking, increasingly, there are requests for group cycle rides. Chris Rogers, one of our keen cycling members, is offering to lead some on-road bike rides at two of our forthcoming meets. Chris often leads medium and medium plus cycle rides with his local Wheel Easy cycle group in Harrogate.
