Friday - Monday 17 - 27 April - North Yorkshire Moors Holiday
- Ailean Hood
- postponed until further notice

North Yorkshire Moors - April 20

It felt like time to explore some more of the north of England, so a couple of us have arranged a club holiday to the North Yorkshire Moors, an area with both great countryside and coastal areas to explore. Plus one or two of the steeper roads in the country...

Historic sites in the area include Whitby Abbey and Rievaulx Abbey. Steep roads such as Rosedale Chimney and little seaside places like Robin Hood’s Bay. There are also two railways worth investigating - the heritage North Yorks Moors Railway that runs right through the moors from Whitby to Pickering, and the Esk Valley Railway, which is a community railway with a picturesque stopping route from Whitby through to Middlesbrough.

Camping accommodation is at the Beacon Farm Ice Cream Shop, Sneaton, Whitby.

If you’d like to join us, please book your accommodation with the campsite directly, making sure they realise you’re part of the Bristol Austin 7 Club group to get the 2019 rates. But please also let me, Aileen Hood, know you’re coming, and what your arrival and departure dates will be.

Sunday 26 April - FBHVC - Drive It Day

Coronavirus : FBHVC statement - here

Federation recommends that all activities that involve taking a historic vehicle out on the road specifically for the purposes of Drive it Day, now be abandoned.

Drive It Day 20

Drive It Day commemorates the 1000-mile trial that was run in 1900 from London to Edinburgh and back. 65 cars started, 35 finished. The FBHVC encourages owners of historic cars to bring them out to show the world, either by joining in an organised event or just driving out locally.

For students of history, details of the original event can be seen here which includes links to copies of “The Autocar” which covered the event during the year 1900.

FBHVC plaques are available - see the FBHVC website here.

North Devon Run - May 20

Join us for a relaxed week long holiday with exciting driving over some of the steepest roads in the country. As well as driving our Austin Sevens, we may also dabble our feet in the sea at Lee Bay, ride on the water operated Cliff Railway at Lynton/Lynmouth, or walk the stunningly beautiful coastal pathways. Come for a single day or as many as you can - just as long as I know who is coming when - otherwise you might get left behind at the campsite.

Meet at the campsite every morning 10.30 am.

Campsite is the Lynmouth Holiday Retreat.

June

 

Sunday 7 June - Summer Picnic
- to be confirmed

Summer Picnic

This year we have decided to have a “Summer Picnic” instead of our usual annual static Rally.

The Summer Picnic will be an informal gathering with groups setting out from a range of start points and following scenic routes ultimately converging at the East Somerset Railway at Cranmore. Those who wish to make a weekend of it will be welcome to arrange camping nearby or stay at local B&Bs.

  • • There are no other additional activities there on the 7 June and the East Somerset Railway gives us a dedicated grassed parking area close to, and in view of, the main car park adjacent to the station.
  • • It offers a picnic area, children’s play area, and café, shop and toilet facilities, and the option to buy a ticket for unlimited travel on the steam train.
  • • There will be little organisation needed – no marquees, portaloos, catering etc and as there will be no judging, then numbered parking positions are not needed.
  • • There is a pub in the village, a couple of minutes walk away.
  • • There is a campsite fairly close which can be booked by individuals.
