As we discussed today it's now or never for our last run out of the year.
As one stalwart is busy next weekend it will have to be the weekend after, the 27th October.
This is obviously weather dependant and as we've had more rain than sun recently that's highly likely to be the case.
So a run to Pooley Bridge on the Sunday morning looks like a good shout, gives all of us a run over the moors and back down through Alston if your from Co Durham/Teesside
Only one thing to remember, it's the day the clocks go 'back' an hour.
The guys from Ncl we can pick you up in Middleton Teesdale like last year.

What time are you guys planning on reaching Pooley Bridge? I may have a blast up from North Manchester if you don’t mind?

Just checking you lads know there’s no vehicle access over the river at Pooley Bridge until next spring now. The temporary bridge is being removed and a new one being built.

It’s fine if you’re going in from the back “Ooh-er” Grin and out the same way though, but you can’t get in from along the lake road. Thumb

Yes anyone welcome to join up at any point, we had a few 911uk guys came up last year from the Yorkshire area. Think we got there around 12 noon if I remember right. We eat at Granny Dowbekins and if we get enough people they let us use the conservatory at the back of the restaurant.

Yes we normally enter from the rear, so to speak! Yes it's now Pooley NoBridge!

All I know is that he’s called chris.

How did he know about Saturday at Newcastle? Somebody must have a link to contact him.

I met 3 of the lads at the BP petrol station on Denton Road last time out Paul then met with the group at Corbridge.

Could try to do the same again this time thumbsup

As Middleton in Teesdale was pretty busy last year we could meet in Alston at the petrol station on the right as you leave the town.

I've booked the conservatory at Granny Dowbekins Restaurant for 12 noon this Sunday the 27th.

So far I've got about 15 cars coming along with maybe a few more joining along the way.

I'll let KP964 sort out the meet point for the Newcastle guys, which is most of you.

As the clocks go BACK on the morning of the run and as the run through is normally pretty good traffic wise, can we meet in Alston at 11 am in the car park of the petrol station which is on the right as you leave Alston and head over to Hartside. That way we'll be in Pooley for noon.

I will do a weather check on Friday/Saturday and post on here if it is cancelled due to snow storms or floods!

The post code for the restaurant is CA10 2NP if your making your own way there.

I’m in hopefully. I’m going to come up through the Dales to Alston for 11am, weather dependant. Looking ok at the moment for Sunday though.

Nick, is this the place in Alston?

Hi yes that's the place, it's got toilets and a shop so a bit more convenient than the old station, although it does get a bit busy. We'll see you there at about 11 am.

Long range weather on Accuweather is looking really good, fingers crossed!

At the last count I think we've got nearly 17 cars now so looks like being a good un.

Spoken to Keith and your all meeting at Corbridge in the car park on the other side of the river where we normally meet up.

9.45 meet at Corbridge car park, head off about 10 to Alston.

At the last count there will probably be about 12 meeting there.
No 'hooning' it down the road to Alston, drive carefully Very Happy
