Halesowen and our first campsite

Today we left Corfe Mullen a little after 2pm  and travelled North from Wimborne, through Bath (which we unsuccessfully tried to avoid), continued North without any drama to Clent Hills Camping and Caravan Site  at around 7pm. We chose this caravan park as it was close to Halesowen (near Birmingham) to visit Steven’s Auntie Christine. 

The pitch  (Generic English term for where you park your van or pitch a tent) we were given was on a grassy area with a slight downward slope.  Here we discovered , on our voyage of motorhome discoveries, the importance of having at least 2 leveling blocks. Fortunately Steven picked one up at a boot sale marked in Wimborne for $5 before we left. This helped remove most of the slope and enough so we could sleep without rolling out of bed!!


We have also discovered that unlike Australia caravan parks here do not have taps near the pitches and noticed others using drums with pull along handles to fetch water. Nor do they have a drain point next to the pitches, so another wheeled container is used to carry the grey water to the drain point. A couple of more items for us to collect as we go along.
The park was very nice, surrounded by rolling hills, green fields with baahing black headed sheep. The weather was fine so we took a late evening stroll into the village about 2k away
