so, day three
we had taken a wander around Burford, lovely English village,









and then being Triumph riders, and seeing Hinckley isn't far away, we figured we'd go the the plant & check it out. Surely they'd have a souvineer shop or something right?.....



um.. that'd be "no". ah well, they are starting to figure out branding etc, but have a long way to go to catch up with other manufacturers. You can get within about a 1/4 mile of the plant....

anyway, off to Matlock Bath & the beginning of the Peak District



we headed into the District pointed at the Cat & Fiddle













we get there...



and it seems quiet... too quiet



"unable to open today"

bugger!

ah well, got the evidence picture anyway...



... to be continued....
