It's mainly boutique/fufu lady shops. Still nice to have a wander round, and some good eateries.....

Now that is a double shame.

Loss of the saddlery plus yet another corporate coffee shop.

Isn't Olney famous for pancake racing? Presumably this tradition still goes on and can now be watched by all those drinking coffee and reminiscing about the loss of all the traditional shops!?

It claims to have had a pancake race for 500 yrs, but I think it's only been done regularly since the 1950's....

Run around Clacton area, with the tool tray & cover removed. Now that is an interesting exercise if you want to go deaf. First thought the noise was from the brake shoes rubbing, but in fact was just tyre noise from an amazingly slow speed.

Such a lovely winters day here in Suffolk it had to be done despite a bad cold. A nice drive to B&Q for some bits & back on the back roads.

First drive of the year and a first drive with the new mats which worked well. Hoping to drive to the Swanmog Xmas bash on Sat if the weather holds.

Snap Kevfitz - well nearly!
Just found this photo of my dad's 1971 4/4 taken in 1977 from almost the same spot whilst we were on a trip out from Cherry Burton. Only two wires in place at that time and I used to watch progress as I passed under the bridge on the railway drawing into Hull. We walked across shortly after opening but not sure whether you can still do that. The Morgan wasn't bad either and certainly put me in mind to buy one many years later.
