Surely only the Army could pitch tents this straight and square to each other?

I believe this is a Scout Jamboree at Bustardthorpe, York

Also showing Terry's factory, top right, and a fine collection of allotments.

The Knavesmire course at York can be seen here running to the left of the lines of tents and up to the original grandstands. At the top right of the photograph it is possible to pick out the tower of the Terry's chocolate factory where Terry's All Gold and Terry's Chocolate Oranges were made. Sadly this is now closed and production has moved to eastern Europe.
