For anyone that hasn't been, this is an event I organise. It consists of a fantastic pub in the country where we camp over Fri and Sat just behind the pub. Usually an excellent run out on Saturday before heading back to the pub. Landlord lets us tip up anytime Friday and pitch a tent in the pub grounds. Or there are some local motels if you need some slates above you head.

Arriving to camp anytime PM on Friday 16th. Camping Friday and Sat night FREE!!!! In the pub grounds.

Thanks for confirming. Landlord says plenty of space now the fence has been taken down and the paddock is open. Anyone else fancy a free camping weekend.


Cheers all - Fingers crossed for weather. See you Friday night.


Regards Lee

I've just found out that the Raby Castle Classic Car Show is taking place on Sunday 18th June. This is a fantastic show, I've been going for years and it's only a few miles from the Smallway's meet. I urge everyone going to Smallway's to consider going to this event on Sunday rather than racing off home on Sunday morning as is usually the case. If it's anything like past shows they will encourage anyone arriving in a "Classic Car" to park on the exhibitors field and enter the various show competitions. Last year there were several 7's on show and lots of E Type Jaguars, MG's, TVR's etc etc as well as classic motor bikes and pedal bikes! Please google Raby Castle Classic Car Show for further information.
