Lake District National Park, Lancashire and the Peak District – all the Mountain Activity Section Northern area camping meets that were held in July.
July started off with us in the middle of Ambleside. Yes, right in the middle. With a little help from the sunshine, hot days on the fells and a cool-off in lakeland waters were enjoyed by many. “Every day’s been a classic,” says Steve. Thanks to Dave & Gill for sitting it all out as stewards. Please, if you love this mountain valley site, consider giving some of your time next year to help the stewards out.
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.
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).
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.
