Photos from The Last of the Summer Wine Run 2020

Nice day for the Dorset Section’s annual Last of the Summer Wine Run.  We couldn’t meet up at our usual starting / ending venue due to social distancing requirements, so this year there was no tea / coffee, cake or prize giving, but the hot weather more than made up for it.    And Phil gave us a 34 mile route that felt more like 134 miles!

Our Ariel-hating Chairmen couldn’t be with us today, which is just as well as he would have hated it with three vintage Black Ariels taking part (and none of them broke down).

Many thanks to Phil Allen for organising the run and giving us an interesting and unusual route.

The Start at Sturminster Newton Car Park
The End at The Horton Inn
Post Run Meeting at Bakers Folly on Bulbarrow

On the way back home, a few us went looking for an ice-cream first at the top of Bulbarrow Hill if there was an ice cream van there. There wasn’t, so the back-up plan was Bakers Folly halfway down Bulbarrow.  I got there, but I was all on my own…not sure how that happened.
