CORBRIDGE GROUP . Can we confirm which way the northern group are going from corbridge . Keithj suggested earlier in the thread (page 2) that we are going south via Stanhope to meet Nick etc in Middleton Teesdale and Nick thinks we are meeting him at Alston railway station @11am its just over 1 hour to Middleton teesdale from Corbridge then 30 mins to Alston or 40 mins to Alston from corbridge . Keith would you mind confirming meeting place Thumb

Hi Keith, I thought we'd agreed that you guys would head to Alston via the A686 and meet the rest of us at the Railway Station which is on the road as you come into Alston. Then we head straight out to Pooley Bridge via Hartside and do some video/pictures etc.
Restaurant is booked for 12.45 pm, 17 persons.
I've brought my meet with Joe forward to 9.30 am, Mark may be a no show as he's aggravated his Sciatic.
Lets not complicate things.

Im not trying to complicate anything and nothing was agreed Nick , if you read my last post you will see that Keithj has suggested on page 2 of this thread that we drive to middleton teesdale from corbridge and that is that , im trying to establish why we are meeting at 9am in Corbridge to get to Alston for 11am when its only a 35 minute drive from Corbridge.

Hi Keith,

Sorry for the delay in replying, been working. Sorry also for any confusion.

I thought the weather is too good to miss and we have plenty of route options to get to Alston. I thought we could finalise the precise route in the morning but we could, for example, go Corbridge/Catton/Allendale Town/Sinderhope/Allenheads/Rookhope/Stanhope/Middleton Teesdale then B6277 to Alston?

Happy to amend the route, some time also needed for photos and nattering at Corbridge.

See you in the morning.

Cheers, Keith.

Okay Keith you guys decide at your meet up which way your heading, i'm meeting Jon & Cueball at Scotch at 9.30 am then just heading straight up Teesdale, I think we should be at Alston Station in an hour. If you want to come down into Middleton in Teesdale let me know and we'll pick you up there outside the pub, just before the bridge.
Can you phone me when you've decided, don't text as I need my glasses to read them!!
Weather forecast has changed a bit but who cares!

Hi Guys,

Thanks to everyone who turned out today.

Despite the rain in the west, I had a great day. Some new faces and lots of great cars driving on some super roads.

I forgot to take any photos, anyone else got any to post?

Great banter, pleased to be a part of such a nice group of like minded folk.

Quite a rare outing for the GT3, first time I have ever used the windscreen wipers! The garage queen is now washed and tucked up in her 'showroom'.

Cheers, Keith.

A nice turn out for what looks like will be the last of the season. Thanks to everybody who came.

Couldn't ask for a nicer bunch of lads to tear up some tarmac with.

Here's to many more next year.

The opportunity to take photos didn't really present itself. I think Nick got a coupe of us in the Cafe (which was spot on by the way)

Cheers. Al.

Yes guys an excellent turn out for our run yesterday, some people were losing faith in the 911uk runs out but yesterday proved they're as popular as ever, which is good, as for some of us they're the only runs out we'll be doing.
I think there were 15 cars and 17 people in total, the only picture I have is at the restaurant, who were very helpful and put on an excellent breakfast.
We were going to stop at Hartside but as we couldn't see the sides of the car park we decided not to.
Hope every one got home safely and if our cars are still on the road and the weather is looking good we'll do another one.

Cracking drive, and a great bunch of like minded friendly people; a refreshing change. It focuses the mind hurtling over the top of Alston in thick fog and rain but wouldn't have missed it. Nice lunch and very good coffee.

Can't wait for the next one; dam those gritters in the winter.
