FAQs for locals
Will this increase traffic and pollution?
Most cars are parked on private or public parking away from the land itself.
Will we get invaded by hippies?
We limit numbers of people to 25 at any one time, usually it is less.
Is this illegal?
We are in frequent communication with the local planning authorities to ensure that we comply with all regulations. We only camp on the land for 28 days in any calendar year.
Why do you use the track?
We try not to use the track but we need to sometimes. We have a legal right of way and the actual footpath runs parallel to the track but has fallen into disuse. We have notified the relevant authorities about this.
Will we be disturbed by late night parties?
Maybe but not by us! All our events are drug and alcohol free, we start early so go to sleep early, we have no electronic music, we sometimes play the drums!
Is this just a way to make money?
We’ve invested into what has always been a not-for-profit venture. Any profit is put into the Land and community in order to be sustainable. We are currently investing in a Re-wilding project.
How does the local community benefit?
We’re happy for people to continue to walk through our woods. People are encouraged to come to the top of the hill and enjoy the fantastic views (it’s a good workout too!). People can continue to enjoy this lovely spot as long as they stick to our values generally – particularly around keeping it drug and alcohol free and leaving no trace. It’s no fun picking up broken bottles, especially when kiddies are playing without shoes on!
