For 2017 Shire LRC are running a new event in Cornwall. Some of our long standing members may recall that we used to hold weekend green lane events in Cornwall some years ago, which were popular amongst our more green lane orientated members. We have however changed direction slightly and created a weekend away that includes both green laning and off roading.
Saturday 18th March
On Saturday we enjoy a day of greenlaning throughout the East of Cornwall following a route previously published in LRO magazine in July 2015.
Sunday 19th March
On Sunday we spend the day at an off road site in Callington. We have not used this site before so it’s a new one to explore! We have been advised that it is a superb natural course covering everything you could expect for a well-managed and used off road site. The site boasts different levels of terrain and is perfect for making your own courses depending on your vehicle and driver ability.
Price is £50 per vehicle for the weekend excluding campsite fees (see below for more details)
As always a weekend isn’t a weekend without somewhere to stay, so we have a campsite readily available, with owners who are also keen Land Rover enthusiasts. They have a rally field available for our exclusive use. The field on the campsite boats stunning views out across Henwood and the Lynher valley.
The campsite has a function room that we have hired for the Saturday evening so that we all have somewhere warm and dry to sit and socialise together. Hot food can also be ordered (see Cheesewring Farm website) and either eaten in the function room or taken to your base.
The campsite has advised that a cooked breakfast is available at £5 per person, which can be booked when you arrive to the site If you so wish.
Other facilities available are toilets/showers, utility cabin (with sink, kettle, washing machine, microwave and freezer), chemical toilet and refuse disposal.
Price – £10 per pitch, per night.
Shire Land Rover Club have access to the field from Friday 17th March to Monday 20th March. If you would like to extend your visit and enjoy the Cornish countryside for longer or have any other queries, please contact Gary at events@shirelrc .com who can discuss this with you further.
5% of all bookings will go to Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance
