    Hi Folks
    We are hoping to actually head towards the Western Motorhome show on the Wednesday night (late) and camp up somewhere nearby.
    I understand there are lay-bys coming in from the M5 direction. Has anyone overnighted in those without issue or is there anywhere even nearer to the Showground.
    I don't know if I imagined this, but I seem to recall someone saying last year that people 'camped' in the queue for the Showground.
    Cheers for any advice

    John

    There is an area of ground adjacent to a popular dog walking area/field which I have used to exercise my dog. I haven't however stopped overnight but have considered it. I travel from the north and will try and get more details, and post as I am heading to the Blackmore CCC site on Tuesday.

    When we have been to Malvern in the past we have seen motorhomes which appear to have camped overnight in laybys/by the roadside on common land but never actually checked whether they did. Byelaws ban camping on any of the land owned by the Malvern Hills Conservators so there is a risk of fines/being moved on.

    Although, by the letter of the order, camping is banned in Malvern Hills Council car parks they have at times tolerated it in Hanley Road Car Park, Upton Upon Severn. According to UK Motorhomes, that position is currently unclear.

    There are a couple of wide lay-bys on the A4103 near Leigh Sinton if you don't find anything better. The first one is not long after you split from the A49 Hereford road onto the A4103. It's on the left just before you cross a small river. There are often lorries parked up overnight and I have seen the occasional motorhome. The 2nd is just after the village of Leigh Sinton and again on the left.

    Apologies. I posted the wrong link yesterday evening. The correct one is Here (though it doesn't change the message about the position being unclear).
    See also Here (just found).

    I travel from the north and use the B4424 once I have left the M5 - the parkland area I mentioned above is on this road (on the right) near a bend. I will try and be a bit more specific once I have travelled down tomorrow.

    That's one of the roads we've seen people camping along (as mentioned above) but it is part of the Conservators area so, whilst people obviously get away with it, it does carry a risk as mentioned.
