Swarkestone 2 – Run for the Dales – Sunday August 25th


Here are some details about the next Swarkestone scenic run which will take you through some beautiful areas of Derbyshire and the towns of Ashbourne, Buxton, Bakewell & Matlock. The long range weather forecast is looking good too!
 
  • 9:30 Meet at John Jackson’s garden centre, south of Derby [DE73 7GQ]. Have a cuppa if time allows.
  • 10:00 Depart. 
  • 10:45 The first stop will be to take a tour of Tom Cowley’s three wheeler restoration workshops [DE6 1LL]. Following this we will drive through Ashbourne to….
  • 11:35 A brief stop at the tea rooms in the pretty village of Tissington [DE6 1RA] and then a splash through Tissington Ford (assuming that waters aren’t too high…)
  • 12:35 Lunch stop in Buxton. Parking in Pavillion Gardens [SK17 9AR]. We are suggesting having lunch at Simply Thai which comes highly recommended. Many other eateries are available. After lunch there will be a little time to explore Buxton and it’s many interesting shops.
  • 14:10 Leave Buxton and follow the A6 through Bakewell & Matlock and on to the beautiful Via Gellia road.
  • 14:55 Middleton Top Engine House [DE4 4LS]. An impressive 1829 winding engine that should be ‘in steam’ at the time of our visit.
Full suggested route directions will be provided and 3 Wheelers of all ages are welcome. Feel free to join or leave the group at any time and place that suits you. I understand that a number of the older three wheelers will be meeting at Cowley Restorations before joining the run.
 
You will need £3.60 in loose change for car parks. Entry to the Middleton Engine House is £2.80 (£1.35 concessions).



Please let Andrew Warren (andy.warren@yahoo.co.uk) know if you are planning to come and especially if you are interested in lunch at the Thai restaurant so that we can book the necessary tables.
 
Follow-up Saturday Derbshire Breakfast & Run from Swarkestone Nursery @ Swarkestone Nursery
Aug 25 @ 9:30 am

Following on from the successful July day, another event of breakfast and socialising at Swarkestone Nursery and Garden Centre will be followed by a scenic run including Ashbourne, Buxton and Bakewell and a visit of interest – of which more anon when plans finalise! Led by John Jackson and Andy Warren.

John & Suzanne who now own their long standing family business are club members and so you can be sure of a very warm welcome and a top class breakfast made with locally sourced ingredients at the Nursery Restaurant.

All are welcome to this new and hopefully regular meeting irrespective of how many gears you have.

Brooklands Group breakfast, run and RHS Wisley sculpture visit @ William Bray
Sep 8 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm

Sculpture Run Poster 8 9 19

Like the best books, a Morgan run needs a good beginning, an interesting middle and a great ending. Our Sculpture Run to the Royal Horticultural Society gardens at Wisley on Sunday 8th September will be just that. The start is from Shere, the picturesque and quintessential English village in Surrey. The William Bray pub is close to the crystal-clear river Tillingbourne famous for its watercress beds and trout stream. The scenic run with some wonderful views, is about 12 miles on quiet lanes used for the Olympic cycle road race in 2012. At the gardens, in addition to the wonderful summer borders and stunning glasshouse you can see sculpture by Henry Moore, Tracey Emin and none other than our former Chairman Michael Joseph. For a sneaky preview see www.mjartist.com You might even find a Morgan or two in there.

MTWC AGM and Rally Weekend @ Woodland Grange
Sep 27 – Sep 29 all-day

The 2019 MTWC AGM & RALLY WEEKEND – The 3rd call to the Grid!

27th-29th September 2019

MTWC AGM and Rally WeekendWell, the cars are now coming out of the pit lane and spilling onto the track for final practice and qualifying.  Smith, Caroline, Lister and Seymour have set the early lap times in Qually 2.  New entrants for this exciting 2019 event at Spa (Leamington Spa!) are now joining them.  Leary and Ashton are flying in from California.  Gapper from Fareham.  Dykes from Sweden.  And from Warrington? Oh Yes! Guess!  And who’s coming from Leyland in Lancs?  That’s right, Hughes is coming from Lancs… 

As always, there’ll be some great partying later, but for now the teams are fettling their cars ready for the Rally and the Team Principals are sorting out Team Orders.

And, yes, YOU can join them, an Order Form for the 2019 MTWC Rally and AGM is downloadable from the website. Just click here

The Rally organisers are looking forward to a large entry of “teams and cars” at the Spa Leamington.  This new venue for the AGM and Rally hasn’t put people off, with entrants signing up from as far afield as Edinburgh, Portsmouth, Rolvenden, Gloucester and – wait for it – Skeggy! 

And bringing with them an interesting collection of Morgans! 

It’s going to be a great event, and to paraphrase the great Murray Walker: “Anything can happen at an MTWC Rally, and it usually does!” 

If you listen carefully, you might just catch the strains of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘the Chain’.  The volume is rising …

Listen to the Mogs go!  Hear the revs rise
Racing in the shadows, just believe your eyes, believe your eyes
And if, you oil me now
I’ll always take the strain
And if, you oil me no
You will never break the chain (Never break the chain)
You will never break the chain (Never break the chain)
Dummm, Der Der Dum Der Der Dum Dum Dum Dummm…
Dummm, Der Der Dum Der Der Dum Dum Dum Dummm…
