To be fair, and it is different for me because I have lived around here all my life but I don't get the attraction, I try to avoid driving though at any given chance, just too busy! plus all the best roads are on the hills above, but driving a pair of pikeys I think they would be lost on you!

If you do come back again take the road from Holmfirth to Greenfield (Greenfield road as it happens, A635 I think)great scenery if you like spare, baron moorland, The Huntsman is a good spot to stop for a meal, then drop down to Dovestones res.

More to the point it's long, and straight!

now we have the campers we have got a new lust for bobbing out to into the country and staying at sites, went to one near matlock the other week, i think were off to castleton soon, having a beeter time than slobbing about in the day and going to the same pubs at night, i had a T3 multivan before so having a blast having all the creature comforts of the karmanns

oh i dunno, we had fun blatting round the bends, its the straights that kill us as they run out of steam

I take it they're both oil burners then?

 

yeah seem quite nippy setting off, just run out of steam quick, although we goit past 80 mph on the motorway

Good to see your using the van for what it was intended Rich.

Sorry it was so dirty.

Cool, you get to see where the signpost is still splattered where JokerClub's mate came off his motorbike on the way down the Moss, you drive past the Fleece and where the video ends, I used to live directly across the valley, across from the waterboard houses on the right.

There some green laning to be had by the reservoirs that the camera points at near the top, thats where we went of syncro saturday after the swap shop from brickwerks.

how did you find the campsite? I mean, was it any good?

It does seem a bit funny when people go on holiday to your home town! Is it a nice place for a visitor?

Yeah, 'ar lass knows the head chef.

The other pub down the road is meant to do decent fodder also, the Travellers rest, my mates bird works there.

Small world eh.

There should be some of my business cards in the shop on the campsite.
