    Colchester
    I haven't been to Rendlesham (even thought I live in Colchester) but have been to Thetford.
    Is Rendlesham very big ? didn't look it on the map, so that's why I went up to Thetford.

    What have they done / plan to do to the place ?

    I may well pop over in a couple of weekends time.

    Rendlesham is not as big as Thetford and the facilities amount to a car park and a couple of marked trails. These are presently just trails not proper runs really.Its not so big but still bg enough that I have had to resort to a gps for directions once or twice:blush:

    It is however an intresting place surrounding a disused airbase complete with large plane bunkers. Its also the site of a famous(ish) alien sighting.:biggrin:



    I actually missed that meeting due to work commitments, a formal group has now been established to progress Rendlesham as XC MTB site. Cant see it happenning too quickly though as money is the next hurdle!!
