What's happened to West Camperville?!?

It appears WV Part 2 “Sticklinch” is replacing West Campervan site. They are making more space for campervans on East side but would appear no more West Campervans...

Noticed that, seems the dog kennels, eh I mean pods, have been moved from WV to this area.  Also it provides a less challenging walk if you are pissed or out of your nut.

It can be fun sitting at the top of the stairs having a beer and watching the antics of some folk worse for wear trying to negotiate the steps, especially in 2016, with the mud.

Wont this just put more pressure on exiting east campervan fields?

"Almost glad" we don't have tickets.. 

East campervan fields will be made bigger.  Don’t expect much to be different for campervan folk but the general campers walking from East car parks will have further to go. 
 

I guess more camper vans will have to go to the showground too

The outer reaches of East Campervan field already seem like they're in fucking Swindon...

Not the area. its the getting on and off. Even in good conditions this year, we were near the gate ( 'forward disabled') and the Q was literally to the 'gate' till after 1pm and later. Been before and it was after 5pm.. (our first bus w*nkah year and we had to get the rental back oopnorth). West has the massive advantage of an easier off ( its just a lonnnng walk)

Hey ho.. no ticket anyway........

Took me 45 minutes to get to our car park in East this year, and we were a stones throw away from the nearest campervan field. Doing the CV looks ace if you're right at the edge of the site, but could I bollocksed be bothered to do that walk there and back every day.

The site expanded westwards considerably when the Park was introduced in 2007 (?) , but I dont recall tbat it went all in 1 go. Oh bollocks I don't know! All i know is that each year we camp closer and closer to that west fence!
