The competition being held at Cleeve Hill Campsite in Bath is just over a week away and we have two very important pieces of information for you relating to parking and payment

Location: Cleeve Hill Scout Campsite, Kelston Road, Bath BA1 9AB (///cards.code.brand,


As the gate and driveway into Cleeve Hill Campsite is not wide enough for two cars to safely pass with pedestrians in close proximity; ASRC have made the decision to operate a Timed Entry and Timed Exit in the morning and afternoon utilising the campsite car park as a holding area/long stay car park.

In the morning the Gate will be open to allow cars to come onsite from 7am until 8:15am but once you are onsite, you will not be allowed to leave until after 8:15am. After 8:15am, there will be no access for cars to come onsite but those onsite will be able to leave.

The Gate will then remain locked for the rest of the day.

In the afternoon, the Gate will be open for cars to come onsite from 3pm, but once you are onsite, you will not be able to leave until after 5:15pm. After 5:15pm, there will be no access for cars to come onsite but those onsite will be able to leave.

These decisions and restrictions have been put in place for the safety of the Young Person’s first and foremost and also to prevent accidents on the road.
