Wildhern

Wildhern site
We camp on the large field next to Tangley Parish Village Hall (which is actually in Wildhern).
This is a quiet site in the rural countryside about four miles north of Andover, and is a good base for exploring the surrounding area by car, by bike or on foot.
The site opens at 2pm on Friday, and closes on Sunday. The stewards for this meet can be contacted by the Wessex mobile phone on 07939 592 200.
