BCT Outdoors Ltd: Bell Tent Tradition Features
Bell Tent Tradition must be the original of all tents. This particular Traditional Bell Tent is made exactly the same as it was hundreds of years ago. BCT made the replica camp on Brownsea Island from original photographs taken at the time of Lord Baden Powells 1st camp.
The Traditional Bell Tent is possibly the original Scout and Guide bell tent design used in many of the early Jamborees and by the Army in the 19th Century. The Bell tent tradition is still popular with Boys Brigades throughout the U.K. BCT Outdoors manufacture their own Bell Tents from our factory in Bradford to ensure a solid, high quality build with every component "heavy duty" creating a Bell Tent designed for durability and long life.
There are numerous Bell Tents on the market, many imported ones of very low quality. BCT produce many different Bell Tents whch you can access by clicking onto our Glamping section of our web site then selecting the Bell Tent link or just click here
BCT Outdoors Ltd: Bell Tent Tradition Features and Specification
The Bell Tent Tradition is still manufactured in the traditional way with double sewn seams, ventilation in the roof with outside rain cowls and all points of strain heavily reinforced. This bell tent tradition comes with a wooden centre pole.
BCT Bell Tents now have the option of a zipped in groundsheet. Not only does our zipped in groundsheet offer both bug and weather protection it has a sleeve which allows the pole to sit on the ground and not on the groundsheet. It has a Velcro strip to the centre so that the groundsheet can be turned back at the entrance – avoids the muddy boots during the day – or it can be removed totally without the need to take out the centre pole to allow the ground to breath.
All pegging and anchor points have strong webbing reinforcement and nylon rings to secure guy ropes.
As usual the traditional bell tent comes complete with hand cleft hardwood pegs, good strong guy ropes, hardwood runners and a hardwood mallet. All packed in a strong breathable valice. Separate pole bag and peg bag.
Bell Tent Tradition comes one size, 3960mm diameter base x 2840mm center height. All Bell Tents are made to our usual exacting standards and all are available with separate groundsheet.
All our Bell Tents are Fire retardant to BS7837(1996) – some people even put a wood burning stove in them, take a look on our Glamping tents website - all tents are water and rot proofed as usual.Traditional Bell Tents are 393 gsm fabric. Fire retardant to BS7837(1996). Even our groundsheets are Fire retardant!
