    No, not Treligga-the cliffs there are higher-horizon is not hilly enough!

    Not sure how, but only just seen this thread, the first shot is definitely Penhale camp.
    The place is worth a visit as there are many Nissens and Handcrafts still standing, though the place has recently been sold off with consideration for use as a campsite - so be quick!
    Some interesting cold war stuff remaining as well.

    Hi.
    I did a practice Camp at Bude in Cornwall in 1948/9 and I remember having to carry a 3.7 misfire to the safety range, that started the sweat!
