We left Dolbeare Park just after nine this morning. I did the first bit to Highbridge, where we stopped to get a refund on the towing mirrors Bear had bought before he remembered where our set were ‘hidden’, they were, really, really hidden. Yes, dear...... That done, Bear did the next two hours. We stopped for lunch and I did the next bit. We stopped for a snack and our final swap. As we reached Lancashire the clouds looked very jolly.

Leaving the motorway we were in pretty countryside.

Quiet road made a nice change. Shame a fence ‘jumped in’ my picture.

After passing Clitheroe Castle Keep and a little town, we received a really warm welcome from the managers at the site. Mike jumped on his bike and showed us to our slot, nearly at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac. Looking the other way along our row.

Awning up and settling done, I left Bear putting up my bird table and I went off to stomp. Down the next row of caravans, I found a gate and beyond, a children’s play park.

Behind the play park, the River Ribble. Rising in North Yorkshire, it flows for seventy five miles through Lancashire and ends up by flowing into the Irish Sea at Lytham.
