Sunday Drive of the Month (“DOTM”) and National Trust Anglesey Abbey visit - 25th August

The DOTM on Sunday 25th August gives you the chance of a two+ hour drive to have lunch and then spend the afternoon at this Jacobean-style house near Cambridge with gardens and a working watermill.
 
If you would like to be involved, please let me know via this thread, and also send me an email (mark.grimwood1@btinternet.com) to which I can reply with more detailed information as we approach the date. If you would like me to see if we can arrange breakfast at the Sharnbrook Hotel before the drive, please let me know. 

 
Highlights: 
  • Follow a suggested route, mostly on rolling B roads via lovely Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire villages;
  • Coffee stop at a country pub; 
  • Lunch and spend the afternoon at Anglesey Abbey; see the rich collections of furniture, silver, paintings, porcelain, tapestries and statuary;
  • Visit the 100-acre garden which blends formal and more naturalistic landscape styles;
  • Marvel at the fully restored waterwheel at the Mill that is now fully operational and producing fresh flour once again.
  • Enjoy retail therapy at the on-site nursery and gift shop;
  • Return journey to your own schedule.
Principal arrangements:
  • Depart 9.45am from the Sharnbrook Hotel;
  • Optional breakfast from 8.30am, subject to demand;
  • Suggested route takes in Kimbolton and 21 miles of the B660 in a semi-circular route through many villages;
  • Coffee stop/ comfort break around 11.00am at a country pub;
  • Arrive at Anglesey Abbey (CB25 9EJ) around 12.45pm; entry free for National Trust members; otherwise £17.40 (gift aid), £15.80 (standard) fee per non-member;
  • Lunch / refreshments for purchase at time to suit you (or bring a picnic);
  • House open until 5.00pm, gardens 5.30pm, Mill 3.30pm. 
Happy motoring!
Mark

    Hi John,
     
    I'm pleased you and Sally are coming along to this one. Hopefully we won't get lost and if we do I'm blaming Pam.
     
    We'll see you next Sunday.

    Hi everyone. Glad to have you all along. At the moment it looks like another great turnout with 8 or 9 cars. Others still welcome!!
     
    There‘s not enough demand for breakfast though, so I can’t ask Ciro to do anything for us. Please be fed sufficiently before set-off!!
     
    The forecast looks good, so I will be putting a picnic together for myself, and throwing in a folding chair and small table.. sadly no Linda this weekend. 
     
    I have the route ready, but whether I can share it electronically, I am not sure!  Watch your emails.
     
    Cheers.

    Hi all, 
    Yes, aiming for 9.45 departure, so assemble slightly sooner. 
    As mentioned earlier, no breakfast has been arranged. 
    I have the suggested route details printed and ready to give out to you.. looking forward to a great day. 
    Cheers.
