Surely the essence is to find your own sites rather than share them on a public forum, especially in the current climate.  Try heading up behind the University beyond Abbeystead towards the Forest of Bowland.

Have a look at www.gps-routes.co.uk, click on walks in England, then the county that Lancaster is in, I'm sure you will get a good suggestion list with free OS maps as well.

Lake District is just up the road from you, Johnny. Unlikely to have problems there as long as you camp on the fells beyond the field boundaries.

..and of course the usual advice applies:


Arrive late
Leave early
Be discreet
Leave nothing
