    I was thinking about arranging a rally for the Goth weekend which this year is 4th - 6th November.
    We stayed at this site which is just 1 mile out of Whitby and is a nice walk into town, or a bike ride or maybe a taxi ride, the site is Broadings Farm, Guisborough Road, Whitby, North Yorkshire YO21 1TL. Tel 01947 601542

    I have spoke to David tonight and he has a rally field which could accomodate quite a few motorhomes, @ £7 per night. Generators I am sure will be allowed.(will check)
    The Rally field has clean water, waste water and elsan point, no other facilities are available to the rally field

    He also has a tent field and a hard standing field with electric but he cannot let us have the electric hardstanding for a rally.
    He has got some other people interested in a rally so could be quite a lot of people on site

    If you have never been to Whitby for goth weekend you don't know what your missing, it's a great atmosphere with people dressed up in their costumes in the day and by night, the Abbey has entertainment on in the evening as well, and aso have the best fish & chips around.

    If interested in the meet please let me know and will arrange with the owner.
    Thanks
    Bob & Val

    Sounds Great, would love a bit of dressing up, but maybe a little far.

    We would love to go to this. Its a great weekend and a nightmare to get in anywhere unless you book many months in advance. Please put us down , it will be great to do it in the motorhome. 2 adults 3 kids and 2 Border Terrorists. Will we be able to bring some fireworks with it being over the bonfire weekend ?

    Only thing that bothers me is you saying that generators will be allowed. Last time we went on a rally (where there were no time restrictions on using them) someone had one on for hours on end , most of the day and all evening . Made a right racket. It wasn't a honda ( nice quiet purring beast :Wink:) or even a kippor . It spewed out smoke and fumes that we could smell in our motorhome and they put it nearer to ours than theirs :shout:
    Fortunately we were out all day and only had to put up with it for a few hours , we were able to move the next morning to the otherside of the field , away from it .

    Hi dshague, not sure about car boot in next field, will check with david.

    Ralph-n-Bev, hopefully Funsters will be only use generators at reasonable times and consider other funsters especially with children. Will check with site if fireworks allowed over the weekend.

    But you seem such nice friendly normal people. I can't imagine you descending from your MH all black, body piercings and frightening us poor old MHers to death.

    Too scary.

    have checked with david site owner and he does not want fireworks on this rally as he has horses, sheep and some people who are camping over the weekend have dogs, sorry, maybe there will be a firework dispaly in Whitby.

    The field next to the site is used for a car boot in the summer months and is owned by david.

    generators are allowed but to be switched off by 10.30pm

    There is a couple of buses that go past the site into Whitby, I will get timetables and bring them along.

    It's always the quiet ones, isn't it.

    You know, wouldn't harm a fly unless it was open.

    Will the ablution facilities still be avaiable at the farm in November? Web site says only open April to October.

    Hi Ken & Lynda

    Ralliers will not be able to the use of toilet block and showers, david has said everyone on the site and ralliers the toilet block would not cope, so, rally field has clean water, waste water drain and elsan point available
