A Spot of Camping, West Harling, Norfolk - 1st September 2012

The Van gets out for another spin and a spot of camping, at the Dower House campsite in West Harling. Isobel takes the boys over on Friday lunchtime, and Nosher heads out on the bike after work, as it's only 14 miles away. Camping next door is Rachel with Grace and Sophie, so Fred has got someone to play and/or get in to trouble with. The site is in a great spot, near to the "disappeared" village of West Harling, of which remains nothing apart from the nearby church and the dower house itself. There are lots of woodland walks too, and several dens in various stages of construction.
