Please click this link Chip Shop Run and print off a copy of the route. It is essential there is a copy in each car to prove there is no timed element and everyone knows where the are going, and the ultimate destination.
PLEASE NOTE: REVISED START TIME 10 o'clock
The drive will now start at 10 o'clock from Markeaton Services.
Having done the recce at the weekend we realised that we need to start the drive at 10 o'clock. The drive is approximately 65 miles in total with a coffee stop at approximately 35 miles. The coffee stop will be for about 40 mins.
PLEASE NOTE THIS DRIVE WILL BE ON SATURDAY 31ST MARCH 2012
John has now planned the route and we hope to recce it this weekend.
The starting point will be MARKEATON ISLAND SERVICES (A38/A52 Junction) DERBY with a start time of 10.30 am.
The estimated total mileage will be 55 to 60 miles with the usual coffee stop at Longnor.
This is new route will be taking in flowing B roads, narrow by-ways, villages and open country side which I am sure you will enjoy.
We expect to be in Castleton at approx 1.30 pm.
We will be checking that the Chip shop will be open on that date but if you don't want chips there are plenty of alternative eating places available.
Please register your intention to take part in the run as soon as possible so we can advise numbers to the coffee shop at Longnor.
Looking forward to seeing you all on this annual drive.
Janice and John @ Costock
