Appley Bridge, Parbold, Dalton & Poulton Guides – July 2014
I just wanted to say a BIG BIG thank you, for all the assistance and hospitality you showed us before, during and after our camp at Silver Sapling 26th – 30th July 2014 from the four Guide Units, 2nd Appley Bridge, 1st Parbold and Dalton, 2nd Parbold and Dalton and 1st St Michael’s, Poulton.
We all had a brilliant time and the weather was mainly kind to us. As I was completing my camp licience on a large camp, I was especially apprehensive as we had not camped at Silver Sapling before, but the facitlities were perfect for our needs. The hut with plumbed toilets and showers were a godsend (especailly to the Leaders), the location was perfect as it offered something for everyone. We were ‘out of sight’ from the road, we had a private field which made it safe and secure for us.
We planned in so many activities; a night hike to the Pepperpot; we had a day trip to Lancaster and a swim at Salt Ayre pool; we walked approx 6 miles round trip to Jenny Brown’s point and we had a plastic sheet slide (a long pice of plastic and fairy liquid) which the girls had a fantastic afternoon sliding about on. The best of all was our Campfires at night and your campfire area, up on the hill is a fantastic spot to sing your heart out.
My two girls (Guides) haven’t stopped singing camp songs since they have been home! It’s a truly great site and I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Lunesdale Young Leaders Camp – July 2011
What a beautiful campsite you have – peace,tranquility and beautiful scenery!
The young leaders particulary enjoyed the campfire circle, grass sledging and go-karts; the cakes at RSPB Leighton Moss went down a treat with us older ones too. How lucky you are to have their tearoom on your doorstep!
We have fallen in love with your little gem of a campsite. We can’t wait to return… for more cake!
