Jim Clark Museum

On a bright sunny friday morning, Alan in the Robin Hood, Bryan in the newly MOTed Robin hood 2B, Arthur and Liz in the TVR and Paul making a too rare appearance in the GBS Zero met at Cramlington to go in convoy to Heighley Gate to meet the others. Keith had a last minute drama when he found that that charging his battery without switching the charger on doesn't work-a senior moment! He got iit started with the aid of jump leads and met up withus at the Garden Centre where Micheal and Denise werte waiting in their Robin hood 2B. As you will see from the photo we are going to have to do something about the parking standard of the club members.

Quite heavy traffic heading North meant that we had a steady run up to Coldstream and then we followed an ambulance all the way into Duns, the cars parked outside the museum attracted lots of nice comments from the locals. The Museum is basically two rooms, one packed full with the many trophies that Jim won over the years in all types of car in large and small events.We spent about 2 hours there,Keith making an early exit to deal with some furniture in need of restoring and Paul headed home a bit later as he was working late shift that night. The four of us remaining then headed down to Coldstream via Greenlaw where we took over a coffee shop for a short break,we then headed for Jedburgh through Kelso on much quieter roads all of us enjoying the great Border roads despite a light rain shower before we crossed the Border, Another  coffee stop at the Woolen Mills at Jedburgh before we headed down to Ponteland then home, A great day out which I am looking forward to repeating when the new museum opens in 2019  if not before.
