    May need a stop over in east London, preferably near a tube station, this would be around Easter.

    Safety and security are key although it is only one night.

    Any ideas

    I don't think you have to be a member, I'm sure you can pay extra if non member. I will just check their web page for you.

    Just checked their website it says open to members and non members, according to the website its full for April, give them a phone as I wanted to beeok for London marathon and the web page said it was full so I called and the warden said she could squeeze me in.

    I'm sure folk will cancel between now and Easter.

    Please remember that you must be LEZ compliant to get to the Abbeywood CC site.

    Otherwise it's a £200 fine.

    Many people don't realize that this site is within Boris's LEZ.

    That is very kind indeed although I'm not sure I could inflict our 3 monkies on you and a Gin pickled Mother-in-law:Smile:

    Thanks

    Another vote for Lee Valley in sewardstone road.. Its very close to a bus route and ticks the East London box. It has reasonable reviews.
    It's close to Waltham abbey and Gunpowder Mills.
    If your a c&cc member there's a cs at Theydon bois

    We've used Aldborough Hall CL (near Ilford) a number of times. Outside LEZ and about 15 minutes walk from Newbury Park on the Central Line
