The event is ‘Workroom Only’ You will need to arrange your own accommodation. I will reserve a workroom place while you secure accommodation, before paying a deposit. There is a Premier Inn 2.8 miles away, There is also bed and breakfast accommodation in Didcot, However it might be cheaper to club together in groups and book self hire cottages. If OK with participants. With your permission I will circulate your emails so you can get together and arrange to hire such accommodation. There are plenty of food outlets within walking distance of the Civic Centre. We will be mostly collecting and recording in the scattered remains of the Oxfordshire Fens (see photo above) and nearby woodlands.
Venue: Charnwood Arms, Beveridge Lane, Bardon Hill, Coalville, LE67 1TB
This venue is right in the middle of the now scattered remains of the once very large Charnwood Forest. There are plenty of semi natural Oak woodlands, mixed woodland, some grassland and an excellent old gravel pit - wetland site in adjacent Derbyshire.
