Has anyone been down there? We're there for Annual this year and after the joys of Penhale I was looking for somewhere a little more salubrious. Can anyone give me a heads up as to what it's like? Grotty as hell?
It is a bit of a transit camp, but facilities are fine and you will be well looked after. Local training areas are great, and there's a lot of it. Good ranges nearby at Hythe too. It's just a few miles from our location in Dover and we use it and the training areas a lot. Get hold of a Cinque Ports Training Area map and you'll see what I mean. There is also a good video available from the Defence Library about the whole area. PM me if you have any specific questions, and I'll try to answer.
I agree with HPF, Excellent ranges right on your door step at Hythe and a bit further down the road at Lydd. In camp a DCCT, run by a guy named Chris, he will sort out some good packages for your Seniors, he has with mine recently. Areas are very good, IMHO the best M,N&P, then Park Farm Complex followed by Reinden Wood Area H.
