We went to the Chateau Impney Hillclimb at the weekend staying at the rather fabulous Stanbrook Abbey Hotel which as you can see from the photos used to be an Abbey.
A very interesting weekend for architecture as we then went to Chateau Impney another stunning building owned by a member of the Bentley Drivers Club, for the hillclimb.
Had VIP tickets which meant we had some good food and drink and the best view from the Chateau terrace.
Here is the view from the terrace of one of the corners, as you can see my camera skills are pretty useless, but I suppose if you choose to take a photograph with a telephone, what can you expect. Still, it’s a better result than trying to make a telephone call with a camera, however as I’m typing this little jokette I expect there is some clever spark either making or already selling a camera that makes phone calls. It’s a shame the photo doesn’t portray the experience of standing close to vintage motor cars travelling at speed protected only by a straw bale.
We have been away recently quite a lot so this blog has turned into a bit of a travelogue recently and will continue in a couple of weeks when we go to a Forties Weekend in March, Cambridgeshire, I hope the weather has cooled a little by then as I shall be wearing my 1940’s three piece tweed suit from Chester Cordite.
