    Default Marauders meetbrecon & monmouth canal 8-10 sep

    Time for a Maraud says Uncle Albert. Woodworm, Two Sugars, Freeway and Stewart and I have tried this site and paddles on the canal a couple of times, The site has a field near the canal and the owner are willing to let us have exclusive use of it for 7 a night, downside there is no water, electricity or loo up there, but a couple of hundred metres down the track are the usual camp site loos, showers, running water and electric hook up on the main site, which can be booked separately direct to the site. For those wanting to be next the water in the top field I can organise a toilet tent and chemical loo (liquid only!!! ) for those in need. The top field will take tents, sleep pods, small caravans and transit size and below camper vans.

    It is a great location just five minutes walk from Crickhowell, there is a pub by the camp site and it was being reopened and done up last time we were there

    Possible paddles include obviously the canal and a nice big lake at Llangorse with a five squid fee to paddle for the day.

    It is also on facebook but would like a list of names on here please

    I'm in. Always wanted to paddle the canal here, having done the Usk on numerous occasions. Venue sounds excellent, thanks Uncle Albert!

    Paddling some or all of this little gem was to have been my Spring / Summer project.

    Something about an election got in the way :-( :-(

    Having thought I could make this one, I've now looked at the calendar and realised that we already have various things happening that weekend, notwithstanding hubby's current back problem. Typical! Will my kayak get wet this year? I certainly hope so. Will let you know if anything changes.

    After my wife told me she might go visit her sister-in-law for a few days to enjoy some spa treatments, she had no option but to allow me a weekend pass.

    You have no idea how desperately I need this! Just one question, if we want to use the facilities at the normal camp site, must we camp there as well, or can I camp with all of you and just walk down to use the facilities?

    That's excellent, thanks Stewart. I'll have to see if the moths have eaten my tent - it's been years since I was under "canvas".
