Mud Locations - page 1
Here I can show you some of the mud locations I use around the East Midlands.
If you plan on using any of them I would be only too happy to show you around or join you to help with logisitcs like clean up. Alternatively I can take you there and leave you to play.
Some of the videos start with Alan showing you the precise way in from the nearest parking. I will add this to all the locations as I get time. All videos show Alan or Davina using the mud so you can get a feel for what the mud is like.
If you have any questions please feel freee to ask.
Copy and paste the map locations into Google Maps or Google Earth for the mud location. Obviously you will need to work out the nearest parking.
