SHELSEY WALSH

Monday, May, 21.

Spent the last week knocking yet another hole in Lynton and Sarah’s house. Last one. Thank goodness says Sarah.

Friday we headed south to Shelsey Walsh for the weekend. This is located between Worcester and Kidderminster, and is the site of the oldest continually running hill climb in the world. It is also the site where the Austin Healey Sprites(bugeyes), are having their 60th birthday celebration. Apologies in advance, Jan Phillips.

Weather so far has been fantastic, short sleeved shirts. In fact many people were sunburnt yesterday at the celebrations.

There were some very lovely cars in attendance,

and we were both lucky enough to score rides up the hill climb.

Another highlight was catching up with Kerry Bennetto, wife of Tony who was restoring our bug eye and drowned last October off Heron Island.

There was also an old grain mill located on the site which is still operating.

They don’t make them like this anymore.

They make them in all sizes.

People having fun going up the hill.

Day done we retired to the Stourport Hotel for the dinner and bed after a great day.

Is this not just a magnificent giant redwood?

Stopped for a coffee on the way back to Nettleton. Sitting over the motorway.
