|Oily Hand's Life with MGs
Today saw us heading the 1971 MGB GT North from our B&B to the Queens Sandringham Estate. The gates were locked when we arrived but we eventually found a way in.
Entry to the estate woodlands is free but there is a charge for access to the gardens and house. The gardens are great and the house visit is made better than most by the members of the household being available to answer questions.
The major attraction for a petrolhead like me was the museum. Many fine cars, most of which are still in use. There were also superb childrens cars which had been given to the family. As an ex firefighter, the fire appliance was a bonus.
When we left Sandrigham we decided to drive round the coast. Traffic was horrendous and the road doesn't go close enough to see the sea. We were low on fuel and thought we'd fill up in Wells next the Sea, but no filling station there. The nearest one was Fakenham which meant an anxious drive through contry lanes, but we made it OK. By this time it was late afternoon so we headed back to the B&B for a shower and change before going out to find somewhere to eat.
Hi, I'm Owen and I've been having fun with MGs since 1970, starting with my 1937 MGTA. Since then I've had three Y types and a couple of Z Magnettes. I now have a 1971 MGB GT along with the TA and my wife and I are still having fun
