    Hoping to visit this next week & am looking for an overnight stop, nothing fancy. There is a caravan & camping site there but we aren't members of this club.
    Was just wondering if there are any Britsops or Pub stops nearby that anyone knows of?

    Hi, if you're talking about Conkers cc&c site I don't think this one is members only, not sure the Cannock Chase one is either.

    Have stayed at Conkers several times as family are close by, it's a nice site, not sure if the same wardens are still there but they were really friendly.

    The Arboretum is definitely worth visiting, has me in tears every time when you are up in the main memorial.

    And for the price of one night on a commercial site, you can get the other 376 Brit Stops, plus the member's windscreen sticker.

    This is why I was asking the community for help!

    Yeah, would probably have been cutting it a bit fine. We'd have sent the book out today first class, so it might have got there on Thursday, but no guarantee of course.

    Still the rest of the year though ;)

    miscreant
    noun
    1. a person who has done something wrong or unlawful.
    No I haven't. As stated I needed it within a couple of days and it could not be guaranteed it would get to me in time. Now home after attending several MHF meets and doubtful we will be going away until next year so to buy one now would not make sense as it would be out of date when we next come to use it!!!
    Surprised how a simple request for information can cause such a vitriolic response :RollEyes::RollEyes::RollEyes:

    vitriolic
    adjective
    1. filled with bitter criticism or malice.
