Laurence & Jane’s Run 27th April 2010

 

After a long winter, it was with a sense of anticipation that 13 cars gathered at the Barrow Wake viewing point at the top of Birdlip Hill on Tuesday for the first evening drive of the season. Despite rumours of ‘dodgy’ goings on in the evenings in the car park, everyone got away safely, although we were rather curious about the various cameras that were being set up as we all departed!

 

 

It was a lovely evening and the route took us through Brimpsfield, Cowley, Elkstone & Winstone. The Navigators then had a short rest for the next 5 miles as we followed the same road down to Chapmans Cross and then on to Cherington. From there we went on to Avening, down to Nailsworth and then climbed up to Nympsfield. Then down Frocester Hill, turning off the main road to head through Silver Street and Coaley and eventually finishing up at the George Inn at Cambridge (not the one at Frocester as some people thought)! We saw plenty of flora and fauna on the way, lambs, primroses, bluebells, even a buzzard and a stunning sunset.

 

Of the 13 cars that set out, 12 made it to the pub, with Graham & Joyce having fuel problems with the car and their stomachs I should imagine – sorry you missed your curry Joyce. The gang of 4+2 in Derrick & Peter’s cars eventually arrived after calling in at the other pubs en-route.

 

 

 

 

Everyone seemed to enjoy the run and the food afterwards and after much conversation we all headed for home after an enjoyable first outing.

Where did that Corsa come from?
