Default Buxted info for National 2014

Buxted National 2014

Important We are in East Sussex and you will probably be driving to us early in the morning. Please drive carefully paying special attention to the deer. We are plagued with them down here. They just jump onto the roads from no where. As of yesterday there had been according to the deer collision sign on the Ashdown Forrest near Nutley 191 collisions reported so far this year on that stretch of road. A person living there has a National Speed limit sign outside his house made of 130 plus bleached deer skulls. It is a 120mph piece of road I recommend you do 50. Drive safe and shoot well.

For those who have never been we aren't easy to find.
Postcode TN22 5RX different Sat Navs get different results.
MAP: Here

Scantlings Farm has two entrances one in Pound Lane and one in Barn Lane. If you look at the map the Pound Lane entrance is in the middle roughly of the two Pound Lanes written on the map and the Barn Lane one where the letter B is for Barn Lane.
We will be operating a one way system on the day through the farm with Pound Lane being the entrance and Barn Lane the exit, different than normal. This is because we intend to have car parking in the field where we have the plinking range for the Southern Hunters. This is in case we have rain so people can just drive down the field. The entrance will be at the top of the field and the exit at the bottom so hopefully no one will get stuck in their supa dooper rear wheel drive cars. Wealden Clay swallows four wheel drives whole. As the entrance for the parking will be acute if entering from Barn Lane that is the reason for the one way. If you are driving up a dirt track you got it wrong.
There is no camping on site and because of the time of year a lot of local sites are closed however No Hope kindly compiled a list of some local places to stay.
