    You are Banned!... Reason - "rag".
    You can buy a job lot off eBay for a steal mate. Some people buy a full set of camping gear, decide it's not for them after 1 trip and then flog the lot. Read up on what quality of gear it is and bid. I'd have thought £200 will buy a full set of good quality second hand gear. Outwell and Vango make good tents.

    Round at Kate Winslet's
    There's a German war cemetery in Cannock Chase which is worth a visit. There must be a few thousand graves in there mainly from planes which were shot down if memory serves. I never knew it was there and stumbled across it one day. Very humbling indeed.

    Depends what you're interested in, doesn't it?

    I suggest:
    Wells Cathedral.
    Tewkesbury Abbey.
    York
    Manifold Valley
    Norfolk Broads (Especially an early morning sail across Breydon Water.)
    North Yorkshire Moors Railway
    Southwold
    Bowfell
    Whitby
    Sissinghurst Gardens (With a compulsory visit to the Three Chimneys, Biddenden.)

    1. Not a big fan of the south of England, too flat for me, so my beloved North.
    Climb any of the Yorkshire peaks, Pen y Gent, Whernside, Ingleborough or further south, Great Whernside (recently opened up) or Buckden pike. Or take the Pennine way from Hardraw towards Buttertubs. The rewards are stunning views and, weather permitting a great day out. Finish in the pub, of course.
    2. Scafell pike. Not for the faint hearted.
    3. Mam Tor, easy climb, stunning views.
    4. Start at Dent Station, the highest in England. Visit Dent and walk Dentdale, then over the top towards Sedburgh. Wonderful view of the Howgills (Cumbrian mist permitting) and South lakeland.
    5. Kinder Scout.. Beautiful place with beautiful history. Mass trespass led to countryside acts, ramblers assoc. and, eventually right to roam.
    Ok, enough of my love of our northern hills. Go, enjoy.
