I've always loved going camping, from the age of about 6. I've also always loved watching Bear Grylls' various TV shows from a similar age. Already you can probably see where this is going!
I finished college/sixth form last year (UK College, not US), and now in the summer would like to go camping 'Bear Grylls Style'. What I mean is, I'd like to go camping, but taking only the absolute minimum equipment, like he does (Water bottle, pocket knife etc).
In terms of what to take, we have no issues with, we've all watched enough survival shows to know what is needed.
What we're after is knowing where to go.
The only real requirements would be
In England (Preferably East, but not too important)
Somewhere that isn't 'extreme', such as mountains, or the M25!
We live in East Anglia, England, so there is plenty of countryside around, but ideally we need somewhere with a source of food, plenty of materials to make shelter etc.
Has anybody in the UK done this before and is able to recommend places to do this? We're only looking to go for 3/4 days.
