Littleborough Rugby Club ( Littleborough sports club ) , Hollingworth Lake, Littleborough, starting 28th December 2023 Until. 2nd January 2024. Only 10 min off junction 21 M62, on the border with Lancashire and West Yorkshire, stunning location in the very heart of the Pennines.

This is not the campsite on Rakewood road, drive past the campsite and it is next right after you drive past the old stone derelict mill, it is shown as Littleborough sports club on Google Maps. Also take care when driving down the single track road at the side of the lake, there are plenty of passing points if you do meet oncoming traffic, there will probably be lots of pedestrians walking down this road also so take it nice and easy

There are some lovely walks around the area and lake where you will find cafés, bars and restaurants

The Bar and clubhouse will be open for us every night, also your dog is welcome in the clubhouse but not in the snug room

Oh dear, Jeff, I'm so sorry but we will have to pull out of this meet, my problem has kicked in now so the next couple of months will be quite unpredictable. Sorry once again Jeff, but if I owe you anything do please let me know.
