A BSCC Splinter Group Camping Trip, Shottisham, Suffolk - 13th August 2004

The BSCC's "splinter group" does its annual camping trip, this year to St Margaret's Campsite in Shottisham near Woodbridge in Suffolk - possibly the world's most lackadaisically-run site, notwithstanding the owner eventually letting us off for pitching in the wrong field. This year was a gentler 30-odd-mile ride from Shottisham through Bawdsey, across the ferry to Felixstowe Ferry, through Walton, up to Woodbridge and back. As expected, various pubs were involved on the way
