    Too late mate 12 rooms? Much easier to ask a man who knows a lady who knows.;) We used to play in that house as kids, we were friends with the previous owners. Legend has it that the Outlaw Dick Turpin stayed there at times.

    I'm pretty sure the owner said she had 12 rooms but their website says only 9 en-suite, so per hahs she has others without.

    Well he had a bike, ......... err, horse I mean.;) In fact, this route between Newark and York was on his patch apparently.

    ps In the cellar there was a message scratched on the wall which said " DT was 'ere!":)=))

    AND FINALLY.

    Paul and Julie at the White Swan asked me to thank each and every one of you for coming to their pub for your lunch last Sunday. I hope you all enjoyed it and will come again. Me and Shirl thoroughly enjoyed making a fun day out for you guys.

    Tony and Shirl.

    Just to add to this we caught up group 3 but we waited to park on the front until they left but @Grumps didn't and decided to park up :(
    Logic will tell you @EnthuZiaZT that if you have 10min stop at Blyton Racetrack and the next group leave the start 10mins after you they should be arriving as you leave, which is exactly what happenned :)

    So based on that and the fact that i am, as the passenger in our Zed, in the best place i can tell you all that Dave's driving cannot be compared to a tortoise and

    you would catch us up @pgunter as expalined above and the title of "the Pipe and Slippers group" is a little unfair :( Rant over :)

    I'm at a bit of a loss what we were supposed to do @Mrs Mint? We left bang on 10 minutes after you and arrived at Blyton when we did. Can't really see where the issue is? We all had a cracking day and everything ran like clockwork thanks to Tony and Shirl, if it runs half as good next year then it'll be equally as good as this year's run.

    Groups can be caught really easily, especially on that day, due to traffic. Because of the air show, other roads around the area were closed compounding traffic along the route. It only takes a couple of slow cars and the traffic lights to be on red. This can easily lose you 3 or 4 minutes, meaning your allotted time at Blyton is cut.

    Theres no easy way to run these type of things and tbh it seemed to go relatively smoothly on the day.
    No one got lost which is the main worry.
