Fire Lighting / Backwoods Cooking

We want to offer a genuine ‘back to basics’ opportunity for those who want it, but we do need to look after the site.   As a general rule, Fires can only be lit on an Altar-Fire or an established Fire Pit, however if Leaders want to plan small individual fires, then these must only be lit well away from the marked Camping Areas, and then only on bare ground.   The Parkwood Crew will be pleased to advise Leaders on the appropriate areas to use.

The over-riding emphasis is on preserving the site for others to use and leaving as little trace as possible of the activity.
