Drive it Day 24th April 2022

 

It was good to get out and about again in our cars to join our friends from the Norwich Classic Vehicle Club on a joint run to East Anglia Transport Museum, Carlton Colville near Lowestoft.

We met at Tesco’s car park at Harford Bridge, Norwich and it was great to also see the local 2 CV Club meeting up for their drive out, it certainly made a change to the usual cars in the car park.

It was a very pleasant 25-mile drive to the Museum, where we had been given special permission to park our cars inside amongst the exhibits. Once everyone had arrived, we had a joint total of 20 cars on display.

It was a gloriously sunny day, although a bit windy, but we managed to find shelter and enjoy our picnics in the sunshine.

The afternoon was spent wandering around the exhibits including a recreated Post Office, Taxi Garage and Car Showroom. There were plenty of buses, cars, lorries, vans, bicycles, steam rollers and much more to admire.

After enjoying several trips on the trams, trolleybuses and the train we made our way home.

All in all, a delightful day.
