The weather was glorious and the starting venue was the Nag’s Head Inn at Bowden near Altrincham where on arrival a busy car boot sale was in full swing. Then on to the quaint little Cheshire village of Great Budworth with its picturesque houses and church. Sunday lunch was taken at the Cock O’ Budworth Inn where the Group had reserved its own private room for what turned out to be an excellent meal.
After lunch the convoy of Classics journeyed through some wonderful Cheshire countryside and later passing by the Lion Salt Works and Museum at Marston. Finally, the Road Run ended at the Cuckoo Clock Museum (Cuckooland) near Knutsford in Cheshire. This museum houses some 627 cuckoo clocks and has probably the largest collection of cuckoo clocks in the world .
All who attended the Run agreed that it had been a very enjoyable day out and the Classics attracted considerable interest from the public as the convoy passed through the Cheshire villages.
The next major event being staged by the Manchester Group will be the Manchester Group Stand at the Tatton Park Classic Car Show and Autojumble, near Knutsford on the 3rd and 4th June, 2006.
