Weekend Away 25th - 27th September 2015

 

The weather in Snowdonia is often mixed – it is after all one of the wettest places in the UK. When MHVC last stayed here in 2011 the temperature was at a record high for September and the weather glorious – so a repeat was not expected. What a pleasant surprise! The conditions were again perfect for the whole weekend. So starting in bright sunshine on the Friday morning   participants were in excellent spirits as they met at the Abbey Arms at Delamere for refreshment and to receive their welcome packs and routes.

 

This year’s group totalled 42 people in the usual  varied assortment of vintage, prewar and classic vehicles, ranging in date from a 1926 Vauxhall Tourer to a 1981 Triumph Spitfire.

 

Suitably refreshed, the first leg of the journey of 30 miles commenced. All those who had booked lunch made the lunch stop over the Welsh border at the ancient Druid Inn at Llanferres the pub is in a superb location close to the Offa’s Dyke path and is a popular venue for motoring events.  

 

Following a much appreciated lunch the well fortified crews set off on the remaining 33 mile afternoon run to Betws-y-Coed, via Ruthin and through the spectacular scenery of the Clocaenog Forest in this remote part of North West Wales. The light traffic was ideal for our types of vehicle, the route was therefore soon completed, with arrival at the Waterloo Hotel in mid afternoon. Most of the Hotel bedrooms are located motel style with direct access outside to a reserved parking space – an instant old car show in the grounds!
