    The Gotham Park RFC is full - have tried to find space elsewhere for 5th. & 6th.but no good so far. Is anyone booked into Gotham and not using those nights? Any local pub car parks available? Many thanks.

    On our rally thread someone is saying there is another park reasonably close.

    Last year the farmer had pushed the MCC to the lower field and was offering space on the top field himself. No booking. This is just over the road from the event. Expect some balloon's to land in with you!

    All - I actually spoke to the Farmer yesterday and he confirmed that you just turn up at the gate - he is charging £10 per night - and yes its right opposite the main entrance!!

    Parsonage Farm, Long Ashton, Bristol BS41 9LU

    Pass the Park and Ride lights, turn left towards Long Ashton. The Angel Pub is on the left and immediately turn left into Church Lane, turn left again past the church into the farm. The MCC signs will point the way. There was water and elsan points last year.

    there were motorhomefun flags flying on both fields last year, watch the weather forcasts because the balloons will not fly iff it is to windy, the fields are a short walk to the park and ride with buses into bristol.
