Hi Kaz
I am based in East Lancashire, only started walking last year.
Generally difficult to find clubs. I go either by myself or with anyone who wants to tag along.
I take a bivvy bag and sleeping bag along with me.
Its great wild camping. Woke up at sunrise on Scafell earlier this year. We had it all to ourselves.
Wishing you well on any future wild camping you do. You wont be disappointed.
Live today like its your last.
