Brian & Teresa's evening run Tuesday 20th May 2014
From GALA to a pub

Nineteen cars set off from the GALA and 33.4 miles later all arrived at the Gloucester Old Spot pub at Piffs Elm near Junction 10 of the M5.

 

 

The route had taken them from the GALA round the Tesco roundabout and into Sandhurst Road through Sandhurst and back out to A38. Then off to Apperley via Wainlode Hill, where one car reportedly had a stop at The Red Lion for refreshment.

 

 

 

 

 

Passing Odda’s Chapel at Deerhurst they then re-joined the A38 passing the new massive horse statues commemorating the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471. Through Tewkesbury High Street and over the 1826 cast iron Mythe Bridge designed by Thomas Telford they passed through Forthampton, Corse Lawn and Tirley to re-cross the River Severn at Haw Bridge and back to A38 for half a mile before turning to go through Tredington - passing the Church of St John known for its wooden tower and fossil ichthyosaurus in the porch. A little detour via A38 again brought them to Coombe Hill and a left turn towards the Gloucester Old Spot pub.

 

Here we were warmly welcomed to their baronial dining room where 30 of us sat down to an excellent meal. The Seafood Pie, which came with accompanying mussels, was the most popular dish being chosen by well over half the diners, while the crumble was the most popular desert with the chocolate brownie a close second. All plates were very empty at the end of the meal - always a good sign.

 

 

 

Thanks must go to the Old Spot for looking after us so well. www.thegloucesteroldspot.co.uk
