Haynes Motor Museum Trip

9th to 11th August 2013

A £5,000,000 Duesenberg!

 

We hadn't been to the Haynes Museum for a few years so it was decided we would visit the new improved and enlarged version after the upgrade. So, eight cars set off at various times to meet up at the Hunters Inn on Saturday. We had visited the Inn for Sundays lunches and the Carvery was one of the we had experienced. We had arranged for a special menu to be provided for us as there were so many of us.

 

We were surprised that there was a carvery on offer so most of us went for that washed down by copious amounts of beer, cider and wine. After the meal two of our number, Liz and Terry, deserted us as they had found the only remaining cider house in Somerset. They waited til after the meal to tell us and it was too late for us all to go. So we said farewell to them and looked on enviously as they went to sample the wares

 

 

 

The following morning after being fortified by a good breakfast we all set off for the Museum. That day they had a transport fair opposite so there was plenty to do for the car enthusiasts. Steve said he was sure he could navigate there by the backroads so we all took him at his word. He was as good as his word as we traveled the quiet and scenic lanes until we reached Sparkford. Once parked we had a tour arranged and were taken around the displays by Mat Piper, the Deputy Curator. His talk was full of interesting facts and it really helped the enjoyment of the visit with his evident knowledge about all the cars.

 

We learnt lots of new and interesting facts and Alastair and Louise were asked if they would like to sit in a sixties Bubble Car

On the way back to the room at the end of the day what should we see but the Cider house Liz and Terry had mentioned. Unfortunately the car needed a rest so we had to stop. 40 ciders to choose from - heaven

Those that stayed the second night had a quiet night with another excellent meal
