Brian & Teresa's evening run Tuesday 25th August 2009
From Painswick looping the loop to a Pub by a River

 

Eleven cars joined us for the 35 mile route - beginning at the Stamages Lane Car Park in Painswick - finishing at the Fromebridge Mill for a “Two Meals for £10” deal.

Trevor was the first car away a little before 6:30 pm followed, at suitable intervals, by the others. They then went via Bulls Cross, through The Camp and some narrow lanes and tight steep bends towards Syde. They then passed The Highwayman (although two cars stopped to taste the hostelry’s ales) and on to Winstone to complete the first loop of the route. There was then a fairly straight drive to Cherington - although we’d laid on a few tractors, combines and grain trailers to add some interest. Narrow lanes then brought everyone to Minchinhampton (sorry Steve) for a left fork in to Cuckoo Row and a drop down through Balls Green to face The Weighbridge Inn (where two cars stopped again). A right turn took them to Nailsworth from where they went up the hill to Nympsfield to look at the wind turbine and then down Frocester Hill for wonderful views of the Severn Vale and Forest of Dean. A drive through Frocester, where the beer festival was being set up, (all but two) cars passed The George Inn to end the evening at the Fromebridge Mill, Whitminster. Here food was delivered to the tables in a timely manner despite a coach arriving unannounced shortly before us.

Surprisingly there were no arguments over mileages and tulip diagrams - perhaps we’ll insert some ‘deliberate mistakes’ in to the next one.
