Description Conker Competition and Harvest Supper

Only 5 miles east of Rushden and 12 miles north of Bedford.
This is a quiet and unspoiled village in Bedfordshire near the borders with Northamptonshire, and Cambridgeshire.
The site is on grass area around the village hall, that is secluded and slightly sloping with a Children playground area in the top end of the site.
Large car park for hard standing camping, down one side of the site.
The village is set in lovely countryside with its own castle mound, a long distance footpath-passing close by.
Meet Details Yelden is the location for this years Harvest Supper and Conker Meet as it is very convenient to have the on-site hall during the Harvest Supper weekend. The hall is available on Friday evening for a get-together. Please bring contributions to the Saturday Supper and join in the fun on Sunday when we hope to have the Alex Wilmot Conker Championship. Conkers supplied if nature provides
