You won't be disappointed , open fires , great atmosphere + food is top drawer & the landlord is real character , mildly eccentric in a Basil Fawlty kind of way :D

Looked like a lovely day and agreat road. Scenery very pretty - although the trees seem a bit sparse for a "forest"! Lovely car too. Unusual colour.

Oh, it does have trees in places, lots of them but in this case the word "forest" merely denotes a royal hunting ground - which was used by the house of Lancaster. It covers a vast area of land, a large bit of which spills over into the West Riding of Yorkshire. If ever you get the chance come up for a visit, it's beautiful and a lot less "touristy" than the Lakes and Yorks Dales - some cracking roads too with great pubs for lunch in lovely little villages.

Bit more of it here, the last couple of bits are Ribblehead and Whafedale.

Hi I have been a member for 6 months but would love to meet up for a drive / lunch etc. I live near blackpool so a trip to lakes or Bowland would be good. If you decide to go before Xmas let me know,

Cheers

Evening Fergie, where have you been for six months :o

You joined in the spring I see... have you any pictures of your car? would be nice to share them with the forum guys :thumbsup:

My car is asleep in the garage, and I don't envisage her sticking a toe into the fresh air until the spring :)

However there are a good few of us that live on the Yorks /Lancs border looking forward to the improved weather in 2015 so we can get up to Bowland & other similar locations - look forward to seeing you soon...Oh & don't forget the pics :D

Videos look great btw what did you use to mount the recording device? And what device did you use.

Thanks

Dear Fergie

This is the pic police. You have, of your own admission, been a member for 6 months, yet this was was your first post. I have therefore reached the brilliant conclusion that you cannot have posted pics of your car!!!

Anytime this week will be fine! :D

(Sorry for the thread hijack, but this is important business.)

Sorry Ash, I've only just noticed your question. The mount is a mini sucker one bought from Maplin for a bout £8 and the video camera is a tiny Mobius 1080p thing - cost about £60. I was going to buy a Go Pro - and may still do - but for the price of a decent one I can buy about buy about 6 Mobiuses (Mobii? :)
