Leyburn and the TdF

Last weekend we took the Orion to Leyburn CC site to watch the Tour de France ( been having some computer problems which aren't over yet which explains the delay in posting ).

It was the first time we had towed with our new Passat Alltrack and it didn't let us down,solid as a rock all the way.

The approach to the site is very narrow,I would hate to meet another van coming the other way which shouldn't really happen if everyone sticks to the correct arrival/departure times.

The site itself appears very confusing on first arrival as there appears to be roads going off everywhere and it has to be said it could do with a bit of money being spent on it as it is beginning to show its age.

The facilities were clean and tidy though and the showers were excellent but a lot of the pitches are under trees which are in severe need of being cut back.

We found a tree free pitch though which was very pleasant.

A lot of the pitches are occupied by seasonal vans of which one or two looked a bit scruffy.

There was no problem with the Orion although I thought there was a leak at one point as a greenish puddle appeared in the front locker after very heavy rain,it wasn't until SWMBO reminded me that I had spilt a cup of green tea the night before and it had seeped under the sofa end,relief all round.

A bit of a tip coming up,you can't put a door canopy up on a non-awning pitch,we did and was asked to remove it.

The Tour de France was a magnificent spectacle,never to be seen again in my lifetime I don't suppose,certainly not in Yorkshire
