    I have to go up north soon with the van and I intend to incorporate a late overnight stop in the pontefract area.
    Would prefer hook up (to use my new cable) but not essential. Will have the dug with me.
    Anyone any suggestions. .? Probably won't get there til about 8-9pm.

    How close to Pontefract do you want ? Teversal CCC is close to the A1 but is about 50 mile south and is an excellent site. Another a lot closer is this one http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/details.asp?revid=12118. Its a CCC certified site but Im sure this time of year they wont insist on membership

    I'm a member of both clubs but I was thinking more of a small cl type place or pub/farm stop that won't mind me turning up late ish.
    (Teversal's a great dog site innit)

    Have you looked at Britstops? Quite a few although not so many with EHU.

    We stayed at Moorside campsite over weekend Jct 22 of M62 on Saddleworth moor hookup nice views good dog walk into Delph
    2 miles from M62 (manchester side) think it was £16/18 per night, site rules must use H07 cable for hookup thou, hope that's not a problem(y)

    HO7?. That`s a spec; for use in industrial applications surely. Why would anyone need to "require" that sort of cable.? Useful in low temp conditions. BUT?.

    I`d love to see the reasoning behind that?

    Thanks for that. It appears pear tree farm may have changed now to a different business.. I don't really fancy the truck stop tbh ...
    The reference to the cable is just a wee joke between me and gh ..Nothing serious :)

    @Gorse Hill is it this site ?
