Keith & Wendy’s Run
26th August 2014

With a good expectation of 15 MG’s set to start the run from the Gala Club, 12 MG’s turned up, and set off on the evening run, with Adrian and Rita being the first away and just as the last MG left, Brian & Teresa arrived in their family run around, having discovered a fuel leak in their MG. Unfortunately there were 2 no shows.

The route started of heading towards Tewkesbury, and then turning towards Wainlodes Hill, alongside the river Severn and crossing the Severn at Hawbridge. The journey continued with a short stretch along the B4211, giving good views across the countryside towards the Malverns in the distance. Winding through country lanes towards Upleadon, where a few drivers spotted Adrian turning left out of a junction, and assumed that Adrian had made a mistake. He had not of course, and at least the crossover section was appreciated by Adrian.

 

 

From Upleadon, the cars headed towards Newent, and then on to Cliffords Mesne, where we turned off and up a steep climb skirting around May Hill, giving the drivers more breath taking views. From May Hill, the route then continued towards the Forest of Dean, passing through Longhope and then Littledean and on towards Newnham, with the downhill approach towards Newnham, giving great views of the river Severn winding it’s way around Arlingham.

 

 

 

 

The final stretch headed back towards Gloucester, along side the river and then turning off towards Pope’s Hill and after 36.2 miles of hopefully an enjoyable drive, the cars arrived at the Greyhound Inn, where they were greeted by Gareth the landlord, and a roaring log fire which was itself welcomed by those who had driven the route with the hoods down.

 

 

 

The staff at the Greyhound were very helpful and although a bit stretched to get every ones meal choices out, the meals were very good with the Gammon Steaks being the most popular choice and the Authentic Birmingham Curries coming a close second.

A big thank you to all who took part in the run, and to Gareth and his staff at the Greyhound for making the evening a success.
