Default 300 series event - Nottingham(ish) - 16th September

After the success of the Brooklands meet (thanks again to all who came), we're keeping things a bit more simple for the Autumn meet.

Do you like 300s? Do you like steam and Victorian engineering? If so, come for a look round Papplewick Pumping Station (NG15 9AJ) in 3 weeks time(!). The engines are steaming that weekend, and it's an impressive sight. We don't have any special parking arranged, so it'll be a case of parking in the car park (I'll probably be there from 10:45 or so), having a bit of a chat, then going in around midday for a look around.

There's a pub down the road, and I suspect we'll head there afterwards for food and a drink.

It'll be good to see you if you can make it

cheers

James

I don't have a 300 car but some years ago I went to the pumping station on one of their "steaming"days+I went down into the{empty}underground reservoir-that's impressive in its own right-all in all it's definitely well worth the visit!

Having attended your Ruddington meeting a year or two ago, may I suggest that you consider Shepshed Watermill as a possible venue for a future gathering of the clan?

The mill is situated within easy reach of J23 of the M1. They have a pleasant tea room and a resident blacksmith, as well as occasional displays and exhibitions. They have an open day once a month in the season and welcome visits from car clubs, for which they have a dedicated display area.

If your preference is for a pub rather than the tea rooms, there are also several good watering holes in the area!

Full details are available on their website www.shepshedwatermill.co.uk.

From personal experience, I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue for your consideration.

Regards, John.

I'm in Worcester, my Dad used to make Morgan's a couple years ago... they are very very badly put together cars and some of the stuff they do is shocking.

Solid aluminium sun blinds are illegal as they will decapitate you.

Morgan get around this buy selling them without a sun blind and then sending the cars to Aero to have them fitted so it is classed as an aftermarket add on.

As for venue we could meet at the car park by the butterfly park in Stratford Upon Avon and go to any of the historic buildings like Ann Hathaways cottage.

Burton on the Water

Chipping Campden

Midland Air museum

Coventry Transport Museum

British Motor museum
