GUEST,Mr Happy Three Stags, Wardlow Mires,Derbyshire? (13) RE: Three Stags, Wardlow Mires,Derbyshire? 22 Feb 05


well we've been & gone & done it again!

Another tremendous folking w/end at 3 Stags.

1st camping venture of 2005. Weather forecast fibbed again*they said snow,frost etc- wrong again!


Arrived campsite 5ish last Fri evening.Put up my little tent in 10 mins, then helped others do theirs.

howlin' gale started-REALLY CCOLD!

Butto cut long story short, big top erected & battened down for night temporarily til morning so could see wot doing + hoped milder weather.

All frozen so nipped to transport cafe across road.

Thawed out-had scalding hot chips,pie, mushy peeas, + big mug swet strong tea- lovely!

Then onto Pub sesh- free rounds o' beeer from landlord Geoff + great sesh with Mick from Oldham, mystery guest guitar siner from Derby+ sprinkling enthusiastic locals.

Had 'hot toddy' from Mrs Geoff + 'Absolution'[6%] + 'Lurcher'[8%]

Good time had by all! Retired around 2am ish.

Similar Sat lunch+pm + evening with mystery guests from Warwick, duo+guitar+ mando-cello + m/catter Emma B + fiends. Sat all brill+ Sun in same vein.

This venue's a real winner & we'll be off there again in near future.

Camping's only 1.50/nite & all beers real ales.

Plenty 'Absolution' I was absolved of all sins & now consider myself to have been saved!!

Will announce when there's another gettogether, then maybe some more o' u catters can come for sessh!
