August 2002
Weekend visit to Holt Farm Camp Site - August 2002.

This site is best approached from the Southam bypass. Turn off the roundabout on to the A425 towards Daventry, immediately take a right turn towards Priors Marston. Following the brown caravan/camping signs, turn left into Holt Lane. The site entrance is approximately 700 m on the right. The site has two level fields. The larger and first of the two, had permanently sited caravans interspersed with some touring vans and tents. The ground was very good for tent pegs. The site is quiet with access to the Oxford canal, which is about 300 m away by farm track. The toilet block was clean with hot and cold water and had adequate facilities for washing and showering. No extra charges. Strangely separate washing up facilities were only provided in the womens' toilets.
The surrounding area is well served with public footpaths. We had two walks.
On the Saturday a walk along the towpaths of the Oxford and Grand Union canals to the locks at Stocton. After lunch at 'The Boat Inn' on the A426, we returned overland via Stockton Reservoir, Stockton village, New Zealand farm and the Oxford Canal. 'The Bridge at Napton' pub on the A425 was closed at 3.30 p.m. when we arrived, but walking on, we found 'The Folly' pub open further down the canal.
On the Sunday a walk to Marston Doles, via the road instead of the canal, as we found the farm track to the canal blocked by bullocks. Bullocks can be threatening if you have a dog with you. We then took the public footpath North, to Napton on the Hill, where we found that 'The Crown Inn' was open when we arrived at 11.30 a.m. We returned to the site via the Oxford Canal and farm track, the bullocks having moved to the other side of the field.
On the Friday night before arrival, we tried to purchase local Ordnance Survey maps, but found only one service station open on the Southam bypass and without the OL Sheets we required. The site is close to the edge of OL206, so two sheets are needed to cover the surrounding area. An early morning trip into Daventry was necessary, where Explorer Sheets OL206 and 222 were readily available at the 'Daventry Stationers'. A stout walking stick is recommended for fending off inquisitive bullocks.
We liked this site because of its quiet location near the Oxford Canal, which provided interesting level walks. We will use this site again.
