 Swanton Morley Rally 2018

Did you know that Norfolk is famous for two pilgrimage sites? One is to Our Lady of Walsingham and the other to damned Swanton Morley!  Well, some of us certainly cannot find the damned place; it might be on the map, and it might be in the middle of Norfolk, except that it keeps moving or disappearing!!

Once you are certain you know where you are going, and having overcome the foothills approaching the site you will be pleasantly surprised to see a lovely sight – your hosts Yvonne and Steve with their intrepid crewman Dickie and a lovely cup of tea.

The rally is well placed for planes, trains, sites and cities, boats and broads, sea and country, ice cream and good food. What?  You didn’t enjoy it!  Then we must check your internal mechanisms! YOU WILL ENJOY!!

The weather was good and our farmer friends made sure that everything was coated with a light brown dust, but unlike the other manna from heaven it was not fit to eat.  Our hosts managed a Birthday and an Anniversary celebration in order to make up for this.

Altogether we all had a great time and we really did appreciate the time and effort put into this rally, and we did not get bored on a Saturday morning when the weather did turn against us.

Thank you

Alan Barnes



Below is a message I received from Helen at the Mermaid Inn where we had our last night’s meal: -

Hi Yvonne

Just wanted to say what a lovely evening with your Gobur Club. We get a lot of parties here and it was lovely to have such a lovely happy positive group of folks. Must be the Goburs.

Compliments of the season and all that stuff.
