Chatsworth Country Estate (Whit Weekend) 1

Chatsworth 5 nights May 27th – June 1st 2021.

Thank you to the Marshals JW, S & PW, L & JB for their friendly welcome and the organising and running of the Rally. Special thanks to JW for acting as ‘Golden Gate Keeper’ dashing to and fro to open and close the gates for all members.

12 units attended, pitched either side of a hard track which appeared to be a public footpath with some cyclists and walkers passing through. The grassy site was mostly level but some units required chocks. The ground was slightly soft in places.

Throughout the Rally local sheep with their lambs and the Fallow Deer paid us regular visits. The lambs were inquisitive and drank from the fire buckets as well as tapping on the side of the units.

Within easy walking distance (approx 35 minutes walk) was Chatsworth House and Gardens. Also, within easy walking distance (approx 25 minutes) through the Cannon Kissing Gate is the village of Baslow. Here are a number of Public Houses and places to eat. Public toilets available in the village if required.

The ‘Party Tent’ was used to bring everyone together in the evenings for Bingo, chatting, eating and drinking, with the urn constantly bubbling merrily for hot drinks.

The weather was glorious, dry, warm and sunny but dropped cold outside after sunset, the ‘Party Tent’ however kept us all cosy.

As new members we were made to feel very welcome by all and we look forward to the next Rally.
