Pub Site Information Required Please

Hi All,

I wonder if anyone can help with this one.

We are looking to find a nice pub site in the Northants area for over the new year period. The reason for the area requirement is that the couple that we are going to meet there, one or both of them will probably have to work on one of the days we are going to be away and would like to be able to get to their employment which is in Kettering without a long drive. A tough request I know but normally someone on this forum comes up with the goods.

Ideally in the grounds of the pub, CL or similar with power, water available and even better would be access to a toilet and shower, but shower not essential. Hardstanding would be ideal given the time of the year and if they were to have a function on new years eve that we could partake of, then that would be the icing on the cake, so to speak.

So there you are. Any replies, much appreciated and thanks for taking the time to read this post,

Regards,

Martin.

p.s. I have just posted a new subject concerning a pub site we recently visited in the Lythan St Annes area.

Only one we've been to is a C&CC CS, also called the Royal Oak, open all year with EHU if required.

http://www.legsmaniac.org.uk/royal_oak.php

I know of a couple in the Northants area but I believe they are without EHU.

Sorry I can't be of any further help except to suggest (if you haven't already) doing a search on the CC and C&CC websites (if you're a member) and check the box "Public House" to limit the search to public house campsites. I was able to find quite a few but as Mark said, not all are open all year or have EHU.

Martin- if you e-mail me on normanlidbury@sky.com, I'll send you an excel datasheet with all the pubs on it (and anyone else for that matter). As usual, please check first, as so many pubs have shut down. Most are open all year from experience, but this time of year, expect to camp up on the car park (less distance to stagger!) If you do find any pub now shut down, i'll amend the database.

Dolly- I've always discounted pubs within walking distance. The reeasons are that my wife is disabled, and cannot walk, so we always stop in the pub where possible. The other reason is how far is walking distance? Most people think 10 mins walk is reasonable, but the actual distance can vary if you use time. For instance, I can walk 1/2 mile in 10 mins, others can go further.

however, if you want to post the pubs on the site, feel free, but unless they are adjacent to the site, I won't be putting them on my database.

Thanks, Norman

      Yes a sad fact . my last three cars were mondeos .i loved the last one a 2.2 TDCI it had a slot for 6 cds which I loved . the one before was a Ghia estate built in sat nav. and the one before just basic .  All brilliant tow cars.  I have changed to a Kuga automatic . It is no where near as nice as my mondeo . The boot is small I’m not happy with it at all . I just keep comparing it . But it does tow very well.  I just have to get used to it I suppose unles can find a 3 year old top of the range one . The only one I saw last year was over 20K and bright red I couldn’t afford that and couldn’t have lived with the colour .

      I think the MK 3 Cortina was the first one I drove. It was a rental car from Aberdeen Airport. It was the first car I had encountered which had a single key for door and ignition, not to mention the first car I had driven with a steering lock. On the key ring was a short length of thick, stiff copper wire. The rental agent explained that they were having trouble with the Ford steering locks and before inserting the key, the copper wire was inserted and vigorously worked up and down to free the tumblers before the key could be inserted and  turned! My father had a Corsair 1600E, it kept randomly cutting out only to start again a few minutes later. This was eventually diagnosed as a plastic fuel filter mesh on the floor of the fuel tank. This was softened by petrol and getting drawn into the fuel line, the car stopped - the softened plastic floated out of the pipe and the car could be re-started - until next time! A friend had one of the last Cortinas, the factory had added all sorts of un-ordered stuff (presumably to use them up?). His 1100cc car came with Air Conditioning - the drawback was if you turned on the Air Con at the traffic lights, it would stall the car!     Cheers Keith
