Wild Camping…..

Not many of my readers will be into wild camping, but if you are a walker you might be interested to know that there is a petition to legalise wild camping……

"Currently without the landowners consent it is illegal to wild camp on the moors, mountains, National Parks and MOD land. It is time to give people the same rights as those given North of the Border in Scotland to allow them to wild camp in these places without threat of legal action."

Deadline to sign up by: 24 May 2008 – Signatures: 717 so far…..
