Will be up for this. Moving to that neck of the woods in June. New location Ingleton so short hop into the lakes.
Will be doing the westside of NC500 as soon as we move too. Perhaps while the roof is being replaced.
Check this place out. Storrs Hall.
We used to visit this place for a spot of lunch when we had our lovely QP. ( those were the days)
Stunning spot right on Lake Windermere. (road out of Windermere heading towards Newby Bridge)
Went there as a schoolboy on a week long RYA sailboat course. Made some firm friends. Took the family there 40 years later. Still a great place, but no sailing this time.

Hi Benny

I was hoping you would pop up on this thread. Have not seen you for a while so i was going to whattsapp you once the dates are fixed.


I will post up some suggested dates later tonight when ive finished work. Hopefully we can fix a date that works for most people next week sometime and then fine tune routes / food stops.

I remember most of these places, but now well over 30 years ago.
The time when you could rip up the lake at great speed, and I was mostly on one ski. Happy Days. Then the fun was taken away. Boo.

Cheers mate. I'm back in a limited capacity due to the oppressive nature of the Wokes amongst us. When it's sorted WhatsApp me and I'll do what I can to attend. The Jaaag is my touring car of the moment, but Matt us getting the Spyder back to normal and I will be using her when she's done.

Right folks. A few suggested dates as follows for you

The idea being we will spend the day in the lakes on the sunday and have lunch at a suitable venue. Leave the lakes late afternoon for the ribble valley. Evening meal in a restraurant followed by a few drinks and for those that want to stay over even more drinks and a local hotel.

22nd/23rd August (Le Mans weekend)


29th/30th August


12th/13th September


19th/20th September


Im still working on some possible other dates. But for now if you put your name under the dates you can make and if you will need a hotel room in lancs on the saturday night.

If you can make more than one date then put your name under all the dates you can and we can see where it fits with the majority.

I'll be driving through the Ribble Valley on Friday on my way from the M6 to Derwent. Any recommended routes or stops?
