    This is quite close to Middle Wallop, you have to be a member cc though. If thats not of any help I do know of a pub where you would be able to park in the nicely kept field behind, they have access to water and a drain to empty slops ( out of pub hours ),its about 5 miles on main road from MW, pm me if you want the details:thumb:

    Hi Suzy,

    There are lots and lots of Army bases in the Andover/Salisbury area!

    I can thoroughly recommend this place:

    http://www.thewoodbridgeinn.co.uk/

    Paul the landlord is a great guy and has recently put in a toilet and shower block that we used a couple of weekends at the beer festival.

    Cost is £10 a night to include electric.

    Best regards

    Chris

    Never quite heard the Army Air Corps Centre at Middle Wallop, home of our finest army aviators, called the Andover Army Camp before...:Wink:

    DLO, just off 100 acre roundabout. HQUKLF now based at Wilton near Salisbury due to relocate there in the next 12 months. Nearest decent site is as previously stated Wyke Down Farm, this is in between Andover and St Mary Bourne. Nice site, though a tad expensive.

    I used to deliver parcels in this area and there were lots of club rallies at the Army Air Corps.

    If you are in CC or C&CC it might be worth checking their rallies for the dates you want.
