A Few Things Have Changed (Part 1)

We’ve owned Bramble Bank Wood for a little over 3 years. In that time we have learned a host of new skills and we’ve made a few decisions that we’ve wanted to change. So 2020 is the year for us to make these changes.

The first thing we wanted to do is reduce the footprint of our ‘man made’ elements. The reason for this is two fold. Firstly this area is visible to our neighbours as its near to the access track. Secondly and most crucial of all to us, is that we haven’t been using the various element effectively.

The Toilet

The first structure we removed was the toilet, the tarp roof was leaking and it wasn’t pleasurable to use. You might think this a strange, but we have relocated it to where the old kitchen within the main shelter was.


The toilet setup we use has also been changed, from a HI-GEAR Portable Travel Toilet which is basically a bucket with a toilet seat, to a HI-GEAR Portable Camping Toilet (as pictured) which is a bucket that sits in a bucket with a toilet seat. 🙂
The new system brings the advantage of a removable collection bucket (with lid) enabling a cleaner emptying experience.
