Visited today 30/4/2013. Gate was padlocked and therefore we were unable to enter. Drove around to try to enter from the rear but this to was fenced off with the warning "Private Property. Tresspassers will be prosecuted". All in all a wasted journey!

Oh how I love you Gelli Aur !! A return to a wonderful place. A place of running wild, fling your phone over your shoulder and spin around on the grass. Remember being young and carefree ❤❤❤
