There is no information right now as it has been taken down due to Covid 19 in accordance with government guidelines. When the restrictions are lifted it will re-populated.

Wild Camping is a tricky subject especially when you are looking at Open Access Land vs Private (White tiles on a map). With regard to Dartmoor this is not an issue due to the Byelaws (it is allowed as long as not on a firing range) but if; for example you want to put up poles on the Cotswold way & other National Trails it can be a gamble. Wild camping is not permitted by right on open access land in England and Wales without express permission of the landowner (Scotland is a different ball game). To that end it would be good to establish a list of “Known Locations” that have reduced risk of getting chased with a pitch Fork. I personally have got my head down in all sorts of locations whilst Cycling, Hiking & Paddling. I think it would be a great resource to see locations that other members have stayed at. Maybe a google map with points & comments would be useful? I could look at setting something up as a shared map?
When you are in national parks it is not usually an issue but national trails are more tricky.(*_*) Just over the next hill...
I have created a Map Here:

it is a google Map. (My Maps) there is nothing on it at present. I will add locations as i go.
it would be great to get input from the community. If OutDoorAthlete would like a dedicated Map it can be done Via Google MyMaps(*_*) Just over the next hill...
