Spring Breakfast Run
As a Club, this our first chance in the new season to get our cars out. We are aiming to reuse part of a very popular route first run 4 years ago. The provisional arrangement (to be confirmed nearer to the event) is that we meet up for breakfast at The Lion at 09.30, and set off at around 10.30 for a run that will take us to the village of Hailey in the Chilterns. The run will have a number of photo opportunities en route, so bring your cameras along. These will include Brill – on the common alongside the Windmill, and where we cross over The Ridgeway, where there are apparently spectacular views. To add extra interest, we will be offering a prize for the best photograph taken anywhere along the route, which will then, suitably accredited, feature alongside the web post of the event. After driving through 39 miles of lovely Chiltern countryside, we will reach the King William pub in Hailey village, where we can have a drink, and either end the run there or carry on to Nuffield Place, which is about 5 miles away. I will try and arrange that we park up in front of the house rather than in the public car park. Nuffield Place is an NT property which was the former home of William Morris, the motor tycoon, and has a tea room where you can have lunch, and an under cover picnic area, so you could bring a lunch hamper with you and dine al fresco. Nuffield Place also has walks through a lovely bluebell wood, which could well be in flower on the day, and MG memorabilia in the gift shop.
