Cumbria to Brighton


Welcome to the new look blog. We have added an index to some of the sites we have visited on the right, classified by country then region…just click on the place name to see the linked blog post.

There are three tabs on the top of each page. The middle tab takes you to the current (latest) post and the right hand tab takes you to a help page for those new to driving in France.

Many thanks to my long suffering unpaid IT expert brother-in-law Chris for help with the new blog appearance

We set off for a longish trip down the M6/M25/M23 to Brighton for the first leg on Saturday. The M25 was a tiny bit congested. Luckily there were speed camera warnings on the overhead gantries; nose to tail in the fast lane we were in danger of hitting 4 mph on the straights.


We stopped at Brighton caravan club site, just to the east of Brighton, for the night. It is a friendly and well managed site which is nestled at the foot of the southern limit of the south downs (shouldn’t they be the south ups?), just next to a sports centre and football field.


The site is a short walk from Brighton Marina which is a collection of shops, eateries, a large car park and a number of very expensive boats a short walk from the campsite. After a walk along the hill overlooking the site, keeping Colin well away from the football field (anyone who has seen him in action with a football knows that he has amazing ball control but his knowledge of the rules is a little sketchy) we walked down to the marina to meet up with our old friend Nick who lives nearby.
