Rococo Gardens Run

A very hot day saw a brave band of MG owners venturing forth into the great unknown.  It was like crossing the Gobi desert - well maybe not quite that hot but it was enough to boost the sales of Tea at the famous Rococo gardens.  Graham and Joyce had obviously organised the weather well  in advance.  Fifteen MGs turned up to do this 30 mile run.  We braved hostile horses, breakdowns and the heat to see some magnificent scenery.  We started at Painswick and moved through the Cotswolds seeing Brookethorp, Edge, Haresfield Beacon, Holcombe, Bulls Cross, Sheepscombe and Cranham to name but a few.
