Next meet here in 2024
We camp on a gently sloping open site at Furzebrook in the centre of the Isle of Purbeck.
Wareham, Corfe Castle and Swanage are all in easy reach, and there are good walks in the immediate area.
The site opens at 2pm on Thursday and closes on Tuesday. The stewards for this meet can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org before the meet, or by the Wessex mobile phone on 07340 248 577 during the meet.
Our usual ceilidh will be held on Saturday evening, starting at 19:30 in Furzebrook Village Hall, which is a ten minute walk from the site.
This is an informal folk dance evening, interspersed with song, stories and music. You can bring your own refreshments, although tea and coffee is provided in the interval.
