    We camp in the carparks Gaz, south and East of Penn-y-Fan but there are loads of small sites in the area. I know you always have your camera with you, the rain we've had lately should mean Lady falls will be flowing:Smile:

    New to all this, but I seen this on another site...

    ------

    A report into Tackling Wildcamping /Caravaning /Tenting was released over the weekend in South Wales. Some of the best Known Gower Peninsular beauty spots are to be protected from such activities with a clampdown on any illegal Camping. Three Cliffs Horton and Port Eynon are the worst affected on the Gower. Landowners, Police and Gower rangers are to patrol The Gower Area and remove any persons or Vehicle’s that are camping or parked illegally. A spokesman stated that they have been forced into this action due to the irresponsible behaviour of the campers leaving behind toilet waste and litter. So if you want to stay on the Gower ,Be warned use a car park or Site. Or you could land up with a £60 fixed penalty. It appears the landowners and residents of the Gower have had enough but it as to say most of the illegal camping is by Tenters. Other local authorities are also looking at this Problem. The Brecon Beacons also as a similar problem. Councillors are of the opinion, we give people permission to open camp sites and because they state there is a call for them. Then we get these so called campers on a Freebie who abuse our country side and the costs of cleaning it up out ways the benefits and money generated locally. There is a general feeling that people who wild camp do not not contribute to the local economy they bring in all their needs with them. So once again a Minority kills it off.

    Ashamed to say that I havent seen this, been up to Pen-y-Fan etc there are some large laybys with good greenery sheltering a few of them

    JJ has wild camped on the way to visit us but the roads could be noisy due to the heavy traffic


    Hopefully the skies will run out of rain by August:Rofl1::Rofl1::Rofl1:

    We found a little spot a mile or so south of Storey Arms, more or less on the junction of the A470 and A4059, next to a little reservoir, and also alonside Tal-y-bont reservoir.

    There's a map showing the specific points, and a few piccies, in our blog (link below), dated January 2011. You may have to drag the map around a bit but you can do that from the blog. :thumb:
