It's nice that were getting all these bookings from the forestry commission, but Mardyke wasn't the nicest place to dance. I think it was because the event was in one corner of the forest, which was directly behind a council estate.
The last place we dance with them was up in Romford at Harold Court Woods which was much better. Bit odd as woods go though, because being only 2 years old it didn't really have any trees.
Maybe it's my up bringing, but when I think of woods or forest I think more of places like Whinlatter, Grizedale or Dodd Wood.
Then again, maybe I'm just being a Yockel and should accept that there aren't going to be nice woods inside the M25...
