I'd buy from runnersNeed, Wiggle even Amazon before buying anything from Sweatshop again. Lost all respect for them when told me "...that because I had mud on them I must have treated them without caution..."
I'm ok with it opening at 2:15 - not a problem for me. But when you haven't moved an inch by 3:15 you get a little annoyed and had I known or they had said the north entrance was closed I might have made other plans. Didn't help that is was a hot day and I was dehydrated and the eastern exit was also closed unlike previous times.
As I said before I've been in there and we cleared the car park in 20/30 mins last few time.
If they started at 2:15 I got out at 3:30 and was one of the last to leave. To put into context the previous two years it was opened at the bottom at 1:30 and took 30 mins max to get out.
It's not so much the time, that's gone now but the less that apologetic attitude of Sweatshop, I'll admit I'm not a huge fan of Sweatshop.
The reason the other entrance was closed was "The north exit to the car park has been permanently blocked with a huge amount of earth, concrete blocks and fencing following travellers being evicted from the site – a valid reason not an excuse and completely out of our control."
