Feel sorry for the poor sods who're gonna have to have 5 days worth of gear with 'em.
Now I stay at my girlfriends sisters a couple of miles away. Sure it means driving in but it's a lot less hassle
I feel your pain, the old Donnington campsite was half the fun.
It does get a little less shitty each year, but it's still shitty. I'm glad to be just doing the Saturday this year so I can fuck off home at the end.
