Waterloo Hotel

The 24th Northern Microcar Rally was held near to the village of Taddington located in between Buxton and Bakewell in the High Peak district of Derbyshire.  Our venue was the Waterloo Hotel who provided us with great hospitality and copious refreshments during our stay.  The sun shone for the entire week-end making our runs through the beautiful Derbyshire countryside all the more enjoyable.

 

 

Matlock Bath

Chatsworth House


Matlock Bath was our destination on Friday taking a route passing by historic Chatsworth House before returning via Bakewell of tart and pudding fame.  Our rally coincided with the Bakewell Baking Festival with cake and produce stalls a plenty with lots of mouth watering temptations.

Nestlé Buxton

Buxton
Our Saturday road run headed towards Buxton (despite our leaders not knowing their right from their left!).  Buxton is  famed for its spa waters and our route took us out into the countryside past the current source.

 

 

Saturday evening was spent in the convivial atmosphere of the Waterloo Hotel.  Pub games and quiz (thanks Tom) were the order of the evening followed by the awards ceremony where the cars were the stars.
