Excellent image but a little surprised they allowed you to shoot like this . I know they ride around in the river etc. but some require money to allow that even....Phil

I agree - the canvas on the caravans looks remarkably new - perhaps they are settled romany's

Lots of interest in this well composed image. They look extremely neat and tidy, unlike some who gather around our part of the country and who leave the sites a total mess!
