The only place in Britain where wild camping is actually legal is Dartmoor, but it is tolerated in many upland areas.
Hugh must have been hanging around too long with Americans to have slipped up with the old Britain=England thing!
Here's my all-time favourite audio-visual explanation of the difference between England, Britain, the United Kingdom and pretty much everything else that gets in a muddle!
Amazingly, the guy who's untangled the whole mess is an American.
Good response Hugh, just remember that where I come from Sasunnach includes the vast majority of the population of Glasgow, Edinburgh and indeed Scotland
i thought you ere just keeping to the points in hand hugh as bristol isn't very close to scotland.
but on the subject of wild camping in the south...what hugh said. stealth is the key and nowhere near "civilisation". dog walkers get up very early.
I dunno... I rather like the low-key 'Rule Britannia'... giving the whole thing a flavour of past grandeur and pomposity.
He makes a good point about the country actually being a Theocracy, with power devolved to the Crown through God "not wanting to be bothered by micro-management"
Seeing all those tiny territories around the world leads me to think that the sun still doesn't set on the Empire!
Paddy, that was an interesting video, Maybe they should show it to the French because they REALLY don't get the Crown Dependencies relationship with the UK.
Basically we just share a monarch with the British, we had some French twit come over here once saying they were going to make us all EU citizens so we told them to feck off.
I am not an EU citizen, although my kids are (because I married a Scot) although I am British. I have an extra stamp in my passport stating that I do not have the right of settlement in the EU, although I am allowed to settle in the UK, it's all very confusing at times.
Not all those who wander are lost.

Ah yes... that'll be the Duke of Normandy!
How did the Reciprocal Health Agreement turn out in the end? I followed the debate up until the point that my guidebooks to Guernsey and Jersey went to print, but after that point, if the agreement was re-instated, I'd have to wait until a reprint was due to be able to include a note.
Good link Paddy.
I don't believe the Queen is the head of the kirk though.
