Thanks for confirming.  Landlord says plenty of space now the fence has been taken down and the paddock is open.   Anyone else fancy a free camping weekend.

 

Cheers all - Fingers crossed for weather.   See you Friday night.

I've just found out that the Raby Castle Classic Car Show is taking place on Sunday 18th June. This is a fantastic show, I've been going for years and it's only a few miles from the Smallway's meet. I urge everyone going to Smallway's to consider going to this event on Sunday rather than racing off home on Sunday morning as is usually the case. If it's anything like past shows they will encourage anyone arriving in a "Classic Car" to park on the exhibitors field and enter the various show competitions. Last year there were several 7's on show and lots of E Type Jaguars, MG's, TVR's etc etc as well as classic motor bikes and pedal bikes! Please google Raby Castle Classic Car Show for further information.
