    Default Marauders @ Brassknocker - June 10th 11th 12th 13th 2016

    The Marauders BrassKnocker Bash 2016

    Episode IV – Oh dear, its happening again!


     An open invite to all paddle folk.

    Dates – 10th,11th,12th and 13th June 2016

    Venue - Brassknocker Basin Society Camping Site

    http://www.brassknockerbasincamping.co.uk/index.asp

    Brass Knocker Basin
    Monkton Coombe
    Bath
    Somerset
    BA2 7JD
    (Entrance off of the B3108 50 yards east of the A36 traffic lights)

    https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/...772b0d61?hl=en




    Cost - £8 per tent / shack / swagbag / caravan or motor home per night

    Suggested Itinerary;

    Friday; chill out and set up

    Saturday; There and back paddle from Brass knocker basin, down the coal canal to the Dundas aqueduct and on down the Kennet and Avon canal to the George pub at Bathampton for lunch on the green next to the pub, and back - maybe further on to Bath top lock and the Sidney Hill tunnels if folks fancy it. Tunnels n back about 10 miles, pub n back about 6 miles

    Sunday; There and Back paddle from Brass knocker basin along the K&A toward Bradford on Avon, taking in the Dundas and the Avoncliffe aqueducts, with lunch at the tea room or the picturesque Cross Guns pub at Avoncliffe or carrying on to the lock at Bradford on Avon, with its Tithe barn and waterside café. Avoncliffe n back, 5 miles, Bradford on Avon and back 8 miles

    distances taken from Nicholson waterway guide No. 7

    The canal is suitable for paddlers of all abilities with low stone put ins and get outs by the pubs, a portage trolley is recommended to get from the camping field up to the canal centre basin. There are no locks to portage on the suggested paddles.

    There is also an option for more experienced paddlers to paddle the river Avon from Bradford on Avon past the campsite down to Bathampton. I have not done this myself (a couple of big weirs to climb down) but it is listed here;

    http://www.ukriversguidebook.co.uk/r...n-avon-to-bath

    And mal grey, baldmanjump and others did it in 2014

    Campsite facilities include,

    A Large private field to ourselves next to the Brass Knocker Basin Canal Centre with easy access to the Somerset Coal Canal and the Kennet and Avon Canal. Note, the tarmac path up to the basin is steep in places but no steps. Portage trollies are an advantage.

    Fresh water tap and waste disposal point. NO electric hook-ups

    The site owner, Mr Young, is going to place a clean portaloo on site and hopefully arrange access to the washroom facilities at the canal centre.

    Off the ground, no trace campfires are permitted at this site, Dogs are also allowed.

    Don’t have a canoe? Open canoes and equipment can be hired by the day from Bath narrowboats at the Canal centre. http://www.bath-narrowboats.co.uk/el...t-canoe-hire-2

    Day visitors can park in the canal center pay and display - but the gate is locked in the evening

    No prebooking or pre payment needed, just an idea of numbers.

    Payment to be collected by Twosugars or Kay (Woodworm's better half) on Sunday or day of departure.


    And last but by no means least, a blog of the 2014 Brass Knocker Bash including the optional trip down the river...

    Unfortunately, I have to go to a Rod Stuart gig on the 11th, however, I can join you for a day paddle on the 12th.
    If the weather and water levels are good I'll probably paddle to the tythe barn at Bradford-on-Avon, potage to the Avon and paddle back to Warliegh weir, portage back to the canal and paddle back to Brassknocker.

    Unfortunately as I understand it my dog is the cause, we tie her up whilst people are cooking but if left overs or empty tins or wrappers are left at low level Molly will try to get them.I have tried reasoning with her even shouting but it doesn't seem to work and a cattle prod or thrashing her seems rather extreme. I could however bring some windbreaks to make a compound around Silverbirch's tent to prevent Mollie’s access if this enables her to feel she could camp with us .

    Breaking wind and blaming the dog is rather low.

    Thanks BMJ.


    I have had to think a long time about what to write in reply here.
    As an original 'Marauder' and one of the people who named the 'Medway Marauders' in the first place, I regret having to say this as we used to have nice quiet camps and great evenings round the campfire chatting. But I will no longer be camping at the same site at group meets unless it is a 'dog under control' site. In fact I have been deliberating whether to come at all.
    Last year's Brassknocker meet was one of the worst camps of my life and if I had not driven all the way from Kent I would have packed up and gone home.
    There were 9 dogs on site, three quarters of which were totally out of control.
    I was constantly kicking dogs out of my tent, I left the bbq to get something from the tent and a dog was taking the steak off the grill.
    When you are in a tent all your food is at a low level, all the time not just at meal times. I have nowhere else to put it.
    It is not just a case of 'left overs and food wrappers' as you know Molly has got into my esky before now and eaten my food.
    Your friend at that meet was apologising every time she came past my tent as I was kicking their dogs out every time I saw her.
    So we beat on,boats against the current,bourne back ceaselessly into the past.

    Difficult one. Whilst I absolutely love having dogs about personally, I believe that they shouldn't be upsetting anybody else and that the humans who wish to come should have priority. I commend Lyn for raising her concerns, its all too easy to just sit back and say I won't bother mentioning it, and I'd never noticed the problem on a Marauders meet, possibly due to blithe ignorance on my part. I have been the on the receiving end of a Sausage Thief in the past though, but luckily this was a one off and I have forgiven Eira.


    [IMG][/IMG]


    So, whilst I'm not particularly keen on having to have dogs tied up, I do think due consideration should be given to having them on long leashes or similar on campsite, if they are not under close control. I have no problem with dogs coming up to me, I love their company and am happy to haul them off if they go for my lunch, but not everybody is comfortable with this and they shouldn't have to be.

    Just my thoughts!

    I was unaware of such strong feelings concerning dogs ,Chris announced that dogs would be there so there was choice, in truth there was a lot of dogs.because two of my friends brought theirs.they will not be returning,I apologised last year for my dogs actions and in an attempt at humour to defuse the situation as amongst friends to no avail even with constructive suggestions to enable Lyn to camp with us. She had apparently told others she would not be returning ,in my ignorance I attempted to change her mind ,
    An instinctive reaction would be to cancel the meet but it will go ahead and people are at liberty to make their choice, Molly will be muzzled but it would be unfair to tie her up for hours. Should anyone want to organise a dog free meet I will happily make available the names and addresses of all mine and Chris' meet venues, i'll end by saying how hurt I was by the hatchet job done on me .

    still in friendship,Ted

    Perhaps just keep son's on leashes eh, Ted

    Please don't cancel - Everyone has a choice if they wish to attend or not (this works both ways and I often chose NOT to attend certain events where dogs aren't welcome).

    As a dog owner, I think I try to be respectful of others, but alas - he leaves his manners at home now and again - as do we all on occasion (I have far worse behaved children...the dog at least listens SOMEtimes). I am more than happy for someone to point this out to me if it has slipped under my radar.

    I look forward to seeing those that will be there, and understanding of those that choose not to be.

    Good luck with the leg Lyn - I'm sure there will be plenty more opportunity for paddles over the summer, so hope to catch up soon.


    Right, now not to dismiss the thoughts and feelings above, but let's keep this thread relevant to who wants to come to this meet and get back on track....

    This sounds great, especially as I'm in the area. Unfortunately, I'll be away that weekend. . . I wonder though, have you thought of going downriver from the campsite, easy portage round Warleigh Weir, pull out just above Bathampton Weir at The Mill pub (good food). Then portage along Mill Lane, 1/4 mile, fine with wheels, pavement all the way, pretty level; to Bathampton, The George, and that nice barge café with excellent coffee and cakes, and back up the canal? Less hassle than doing the Avoncliffe and Limpley Stoke weirs, more entertaining than the canal both ways.... Have fun.

    The social worker in me wants to find a compromise, I am saddened that the friendliest bunch of people I have ever had the pleasure to spend time with are at slogging it out a bit on the website, but then as a free person I applaud freedom of speech.

    But then we are all human and you can't please all of the people all of the time, I am usually good at helping people around me to compromise but this one is tricky as I can genuinely see both sides of the debate, I am going to sleep on it.

    With regard to whether or not I can get there. Right now I am in the middle of organising a sea cadet weekend for the same time slot so I am unlikely to get there, which is sad as I love that lil field, the canal and the angel cafe too, as well as all you lot.

    Whatever happens please be kind to each other it is I believe the spirit of the marauders?

    Peace and Love

    Dave

    Sorry to have to miss this one. Brassknocker Basin is a great place to camp and put in. I'll be down in Cornwall for my daughter's birthday that weekend. Have a good meet everyone.

    Hi Rocky and family, if Frockhoppers boss on the coal round won't give her time off I'll send my Mrs to sort him out, she bump starts Jumbo jets at Gatwick. Loads of room at the site ,here's hoping you can make it.

    Cheers Ted.

    PS Thanks Albert ( how can I call someone so much younger Uncle )

    Yippee, or am I too old for such expressions of exuberance ? See you there Guys. On a general note firewood is always welcome,don't make me have to cuddle Kay for warmth ,she's of a nervous disposition already ��

    Chris is contacting Richard the site owner this weekend and will PM all confirmed attendees with the gate code.

    Brian there is no need to call me sir ,I was poor myself once, before I got Kay the coal round before her day job started . a stroke of genius I thought.
