    We have had loads of requests for day visitors at the Highlands End meet this month but sadly we unable to accept people on site that are not camping.

    So what we have decided to do is hold an afternoon meet as well at the same location as we did last November at West Bay in the large car park just as you arrive into the town.

    The meet will run from midday until around 4pm .

    The location of the afternoon meet will be West Bay Road Car Park, West Bay, Bridport, Dorset DT6 4EW.

    West Bay is a charming fishing village on the famous Jurassic Coastline. West Bay is a gateway to the Jurassic Coast, which covers 95 miles of coast from Orcombe Rocks at Exmouth, Devon to Studland Bay in Dorset.

    Sometimes known as the Dinosaur Coast, tourists throughout the World visit Dorset for fossil hunting in stunning coastal scenery. The famous sandstone East Cliff at West Bay, formed from Lower Jurassic Bridport Sands exposes 180 million years of history & is now famous as the backdrop for the award winning TV series 'Broadchurch'.

    Can I ask what’s happening on Saturday afternoon meet. Are we all decamping to the car park or is it those who are coming as a day visitor?

    That is the plan but obviously optional, I know some people wanted to go down to West Bay any way and it is only a 5 minute drive away and it will be nice to combine it with meeting the people that could not make the meet for the whole weekend.

    Hiya I’m working in London at the mo. my Prius fan has stopped,working today-it cools the hybrid. I’m awaiting Relay back to Xshire after work and I was originally expecting to drive my Cali to the meet this evening at the campsite on West Bay and I won’t make it Today or this weekend. I have a gravel pitch paid for under the name Dr Isabel Mowet, Isa Neal on the forum .
    Please do use my paid pitch for someone else, I don’t want any money back,from this at all. have a great Weekend!

    Sorry to hear this Isa, I think several other people have cancelled also due to the possible weather tomorrow night so you are not alone, hope you get things sorted and hope to see you at another meet.

    I have had a couple of people ask if the afternoon meet is still going ahead, yes it is, we will be there from around midday.

    Most people up here at Highlands End will be walking down along the coastal path.

    Anyone at the campsite reading this and wants to come along please meet Simon at the area where the club banner and flag is at 11.30am.
