That sort of people will enrage people who already get unreasonably enraged at the thought of others being allowed to pitch their tents, and will do nothing at all to anyone who thinks that pitching your tent on a moor is no big deal.

Haters gonna hate.

Roadside camping isn't wild camping.

Looks like the mine shops near Surrender Bridge. Daft if is, there are loads of tracks up the fells accessible from there, and no one would have ever known.

An official site obviously isn't wild camping and showmen I'd think get permission to set up their temporary sites for the duration of the show. There are annual fairs and circuses on the Downs in Bristol (it's more like a large urban park than what you'd normally call Downs), the vans are pitched next to the show site and it's all clearly above board and authorised. A group of caravans without a show camping in the same place would definitely not be tolerated.

Are you sure? Parry's Lane on the northern edge of the Downs regularly seems to be full of parked vans. e.g. https://www.reddit.com/r/bristol/comments/gmcxa4/does_anyone_know_why_parrys_lane_on_the_downs_is/

The fairs and circuses set up by the Water Tower, actually on the grass rather than the road. Parry's Lane is the other end of the Downs and the vans there are on the road, rather than the grass, which makes them highways responsibility rather than the Downs Committee.

Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

Too right. If you’re going to wild camp be discrete! Bright tents in a gang  ???
