Last week my wife and I stayed in Cromford as a base for our touring holiday of The Peak District.
After unpacking at the hotel (Alison House) we decided to have a walk round the village.
As we came down the hill into The Market Place we couldn't believe our eyes as within half a mile of where we were staying we saw a 1985 Triking parked outside a shop. There was also a lovely left hand drive 1952 MG TD next to it so we had to go inside and introduce ourselves.
The cars are owned by Martin and Anne who run the Taylor - Wilde Chocolate Shop. They make lovely artisan chocolates from their base in Cromford and when its dry commute from home the 15 miles or so in their open top cars.
The next day I brought our M3W to park next to and compare the two three wheelers. Not something I thought I would ever get the chance to do as they are even rarer than Morgan's.
I did consider buying one for a while last year (especially after discovering TM!) but still opted for The Morgan so it was interesting to see what the Triking was like in the flesh.
We arranged to come back in the evening and I took Martin out for a long spin in my car and then we swapped and he gave me and then my wife an exhilarating spin in his.
So if you are ever in Cromford do look out for the cars parked outside the shop or go in to meet Martin and Anne.
They are always pleased to discuss cars and also make amazing chocolates!!
