Yes, it’s another camping fish’n’chips post. If you have some kind of mobile fish’n’chip facility, get friendly with your local campsite, and suggest that you turn up on a weekend evening to cater for hungry campers. It’s a licence to print money because who is going to turn down fish’n’chips? Especially just a couple of hours after England beat Sweden 2-0 in the 2018 World Cup quarter final, and there are some very “refreshed” people on the campsite who need to get some substantial food inside them.
That was not us. We had undertaken the small matter of a 10 mile walk in 30 degree heat instead. We were definitely in need of sustenance, but for different reasons, due to extreme calorie expenditure.
This is why there is no photo of tonight’s tea. It was hoovered up at extreme speed. It took us about 20x longer to order and wait for it than it did to eat it (everything is freshly cooked to order, and there were a large number of refreshed people ahead of us in the queue). It was delicous, crispy battered cod and nicely crisp chips, all from a van. Great stuff.
Instead, here is a photo of some wild chicory. There’s quite a lot of it growing around the area, although we did have to Google it when we got back to the site to confirm what it was.
We have stayed at Highfield Farm Touring Park several times now. The current fish’n’chip van is different to the one we frequented on our last visit, but it is still very good. Another reason to stay at this lovely campsite.
