    Langley Castle run / meet with Gentlemans afternoon tea Sunday 14th July

    Hi all, I haven't done Crieff this year, but had always planned to setup a few smaller run / meet events later in the year and so here we are tentatively at the moment.

    Way back in July 2017 we had a great run to Haydon Bridge, stopping off at Langley Castle for a photoshoot, which was beautiful, we were lucky and had a great day for it too.



    We stopped for a photoshoot and agreed to have a run there at some point, well I think this may now be some point.
    The provisional plan is as follows...…

    The date is locked in for Sunday 14th July 2019
    The plan is to meet at KFC, Bridge Lane, Penrith, CA11 8HW which is just off Jctn 40 of the M6 Link
    We'll be looking to meet there at 10.00am and congregate, gathering the convoy together in preparation for the run

    We'd be leaving KFC at 10.30 am for the run. The designated route will be along the A686 from Penrith with the ultimate destination being Langley Castle hotel. The Castle offers a choice of traditional afternoon tea / confectioners afternoon tea, or, wait for it...….Gentleman's afternoon tea! ( quite suitable for a Jaguar owner don't you think? )
    The prices are from £14.50 - £19.50 and so a little more expensive, but, you and your Jag are worth it.

    The route is the A686, A road worthy of driving allegedly, see here...... www.drivingroads.co.uk/hartside-pass-a686

    "The actual Hartside Pass is only small part of this route, but the whole of the A686 is an excellent road to drive, so why just stop at once you have done the pass, complete the whole road and have a huge smile on your face after getting to the A69 near Hexam."


    There'll be no prizes or raffles as per Crieff, just a plain ole run / meet event with lots of craic / banter
    The route takes around an hour which should see us at the Langley Castle Hotel for around 11.30pm there or thereabouts, with lunch starting at around 12pm

    I've had an initial conversation with receptionist ( awaiting call back from Elaine, the duty manager of the hotel ) and she reckons on spaces for around 20 cars, but may be able to accommodate more.

    So basically a run to the gathering point, then a convoy to the meet point along some good driving roads, lunch followed by some craic and a little banter, putting faces to names, some veteran meet attendees and some new ones possibly.

    The road is awesome, the Castle stunning and the food looks great, throw in some sunshine ( hopefully ) and 20+ Jags and owners, could be another great day!!
    The last run in 2017 we had fun on the way there, but oh so so much better on the return leg

    Anyone up for it, please add your name to the list below and pm with your name, car details and mobile contact number. As usual I'll send text updates with info etc in the run up to the event on the day.

    Hello, Jim,

    Can you provisionally add me to the list + 1

    Will most probably be in the XKR

    Also would it be possible to maybe meet you at Hartside, rather than drive across to Penrith

    Thanks
