Evening Run by Rob & Myn

24th July 2018

On the 24th of July, 15 cars assembled in the traditional layby at Severn Springs, even beating the road repair lorries, that had a surprise when they turned up shortly before we started t depart. (A couple of late arrivals found it eerily quiet).  Terry was breaking in his son as his new navigator


 

 

 

In what was definitely “top down” weather, cars took the Cirencester turn off the roundabout, but veered right at Cockleford, to take some of the quieter roads sandwiched between the A417 and A435, before passing under the former at Duntisbourne and down to Sapperton. It turned out that mentioning the Daneway as a navigation marker was a good idea, enabling some who had a hard time turning left to catch up later on.  Onwards to Bisley and The Camp. 

 

 

Cars next went through Sheepscombe (and past the Butcher’s arms, another GMGOC favourite) looping past the A46 to Cranham Corner, where some were surprised to see your humble narrator taking pictures at the temporary traffic lights.  And so to Birdlip, and the lesser explored roads to Brimpsfield, Caudle Green and Winstone, where the recently removed signpost to Miserden thankfully didn’t confuse too many navigators.  Finally, right turn and up past Whiteway, to our final destination, the Fostons Ash Inn.


 

 

 

Drivers who noted a tendency to turn right more than left, found out that the route had been something of a clockwise spiral, almost twice round in a clockwise direction.

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

Seven cars turned up at the Fostons Ash, followed by a long pause before the last car to depart was the next to arrive.  Fortunately, the pub were able to hold the food until the rest turned up, having had the aforementioned difficulty with that left turn.Ham, egg and chips were a popular menu choice but everyone was pleased with the food and with the speed with which it arrived.  I am told that the gin selection was also much admired, especially the “Polo” gin, made by the new owners of the pub, who are also MG enthusiasts.
