  1. Alright gents, I was just wondering if anyone is or has been in SFA in West Lulworth, namely Vale Rd.

    Mrs POM and I have just been allocated an address but as they're Grade 4 we wanted to find out if the houses are ok and the grading is just because it's in the arrse end of nowhere!

    Before someone says "go and look for yourself", we're in Germany right now and that's one hell of a taxi fare...

    Cheers!

    Gives you an idea of the style (or lack of) anyway. Google camera van hasn't been down Vale road but you can move down the B3070 on the first link and look over the hedge! :)


    Also have a look at Bovington - PatchPedia
     
  3. I knew someone would say it...........

    Cheers for the PatchPedia link, not seen that one before.

  10. Thanks for the info gents, my Google recce already showed the pub so I'm well happy with that!
     
  11. Spent many a happy hour/day in the Castle - fond memories. In respect of noise I believe that they don't use they don't fire much from Bravo any longer. I do recall living in a mobile across the road and the spectacular night shoots. Downside re-arranging door frames to fit!!!!
