:lol: Yes, i wondered about that but thought he meant were you sure about the place being demolished for centre park lodges. :confused: Dunno. :mrgreen:

I can assure you that centre parc's is in a completly different area, something like 2 miles or more away, so it wont be an 'extension' of centre parcs.

As Sal points out another company owns the site and they want to build holiday lodges there.

Airsoft games have been played there but not sure if they still do.

Hope that is more clear :)

Nice one, I nearly went there when I was an air cadet in the early part of this decade but wasn't able to make the camp :(

ahhh I was just remembering this place.. I was in the army cadets Mansfield around 1988 (I think!).. spent a good weekend here.. really have fond memories.. plus we enjoyed a night exercise in sherwood forest using flares as well.. epic.. I remember getting "best cadet" at the end and had to march up in front of hundreds to get my "rambo knife" award.. fond times.... I have memories of several of us guys in one sleeping area trying to sleep and some guy walking round with his **** out "full hard!"... but besides that.. the girls billet was opposite.. we all remember gazing out the window and wondering if we should sneak across! ahaa!.. lol

In the mid 80's during the miners strike it was used to house Police from all around the country, I recall that those from Hampshire had to form up and march around the place when going to board their carriers to go to the pits. Until I read this I had forgotten about the stoves in the middle of the huts. My main memory is waking up to frost on the outside of my blankets.

Maybe the stoves were the cylindrical Tortoise stoves - with the Slow But Sure motto.
