Hebden Bridge

At The Caravan Club

Cragg Vale,Hebden Bridge,West Yorkshire,HX7 5RU

Barry Moy

In May 2017 I organised a Murvi Meet at Hebden Bridge. A number of members who attended the meet, as well as some who were unable to attend, have asked if I would arrange a repeat meet there.
I am, therefore, pleased to let you all know that in response to these requests I am planning a 4 night meet at the Caravan and Motorhome Club's Hebden Bridge site in the Upper Calder Valley of West Yorkshire from Monday 2 September to Friday 6 September. 
The site has 54 pitches in total, 34 of which are hardstanding. 
The site does NOT have a toilet / shower block. 
The site is located in Cragg Vale which has been described as a lush, steep sided Pennine wooded valley of outstanding natural beauty nestled amongst the moors that surround it on all sides.The Upper Calder Valley offers splendid opportunities for healthy outdoor pursuits. The Pennine Way and the Calderdale Way both criss cross the valley and I intend to lead a couple of walks that will utilise both of these paths. 
The bustling market town of Hebden Bridge is just 3 miles away and can easily be reached from the bus stop outside the site.

To continue the Yorkshire theme the follow-on will be at Mason’s Campsite at Appletreewick from Friday 6thSeptember to Tuesday am 10thSeptember.  This was a site we used very successfully four years ago.

The venue is in an exceptionally pretty part of Wharfedale in the Yorkshire Dales not far from Ilkley and Skipton, just a mile from Burnsall and a little further from Grassington.  The level site is right by the river and has good facilities including hook-ups.

Appletreewick itself is a small rural village with a couple of pubs, one of which, The Craven Arms, boasts a superb authentic cruck barn where we will be able to enjoy a group meal. (more…)

The meet is based on a pub car park just south of the city centre, a few minutes walk from the Manchester Metro and a short journey to the centre of the town. Steve Little will do a series of guided walks round the city looking at its architecture, history and development, including the world’s oldest railway station and the Grade I neo-gothic Town Hall. 

The pub is a multi-roomed, friendly establishment close to shops and other amenities.

The numbers will be limited because of the nature of the meet, the guided walks and the size of some of the venues we will visit.

For further please contact Steve Little at stevelittleresearch@hotmail.co.uk

November Pre-Meet

Exmoor House Caravan and Motorhome Club site at Dulverton.

From 1 p.m.

Julia Wright / 07740406449

For those of you wanting to extend Brian’s November meet in South Molton, I will be staying at Exmoor House Caravan and Motorhome Club site at Dulverton.  See Page 80 in the CMC Sites Directory and Handbook or https://www.caravanclub.co.uk/club-sites/england/southern-england/somerset/exmoor-house-caravan-club-site/

If you would like to join me there please book yourself in and let me know that you have done so.  The site has 66 pitches and is popular, so early booking is advisable.

Julia Wright (Juliaright@aol.com, or 07740 406449)

Address:  Dulverton, Somerset, TA22 9HL (01398 323268). 

The Site - Exmoor House Caravan Club Site is a pretty, peaceful destination which offers superb views up the valley and with some pitches overlooking the River Barle.  The site is within easy walking distance of Dulverton, with its shops, pubs and restaurants.

Dulverton is known as the Southern gateway to Exmoor.  The town stands between the rivers Barle and Exe which converge a mile or so down the valley.

Supermarkets - The closest are Morrisons and Tesco in Tiverton, about 15 miles from the site. There is a local Co-op and a deli in Dulverton.

Public Transport - There is a bus service 300 yards from the site, to Minehead, Tiverton and Taunton.

The site makes a good base to explore Exmoor.  Conveniently, the National Park's Information Centre is a short stroll from the site.  There are many walks from the town - the riverside walks both ways along the Barle being very popular.

The site is behind Exmoor House, the National Park HQ and is best approached from the South.  It is best to avoid the centre of Dulverton as the roads are narrow with sharp bends. 

Arrival Time - The 1 p.m. arrival time is a rule made by Exmoor National Park Authority to restrict caravan movements within the National Park itself.  It is apparently a condition of the lease that the wardens enforce this, so please do not arrive before 1 p.m.  For those of you who will use the M5 (southbound), it takes about 40 minutes from Taunton Deane services to reach Dulverton.
