    I'm off to Wales for the weekend in a few weeks and some muppet suggested a bit of wild camping :eek: Cos obviously it's lovely and warm this time of year.
    Can anyone shed some light on what the rules are regarding fires please.
    I've got a steel chimnea I can take if needs be to keep it off the ground 20190912_012728.jpg

    Normally no fires. It attracts the locals to come & complain.
    If your way out & cant see any houses/lights you could get away with a small 1.

    What Phil said, I wild camp a lot (going this weekend) and only have fires in the permission areas, otherwise I use a down bag and a gas stove and drink some booze

    Somewhere where you have the landowners permission basically, I have access to two.

    Sorry I worded it badly

    OK, Makes sense, thanks for the clarification.

    When I think of the term "wild camping" I automatically think of just parking up on the side of the byway and making camp, it always concerns me when I hear it used and know that is how peeps are also planning to do it.

    @Marmaduke As for rules regarding fires, I would say there are no rules as in Wales I believe it is considered unlawful to wild camp, unless you have as flat has, and access to wild camp in a place with permission.

    Cheers

    I've always wildcamped at the end of a day, up n out for the start of a day and there fore don't get seen and there fore don't get moaned at. A fire would compromise that.
