water/coffee stop at this year's london to brighton

Just a quick one - can someone give me the address for Ray Clark's coffee/water stop? I'm over from Australia and have hired a 'modern' so I can photograph the start, water stop, and end at Brighton

Best wishes to all who are participating - see you there :-)

Cheers
Jerry

Jerry,

I hope you have a good time at the forthcoming London to Brighton and take lots of photos.

No doubt somebody who actually attends the coffee stop will post the address here for you. Unfortunately I do not have it.

However, the purpose of my replying to your post is to ask if you would send me photos of the Start, Coffee Stop and Finish of steam cars so that I can build up an article for the club's magazine.

What would be even better would be if you could write an article of your adventure to the London and Brighton, Highs, Lows, etc., to accompany the photos. Our world wide membership would be very interested to hear how you got on.

If you venture to the Yorkshire area then please call in to see Sandra and myself. We would like to meet up again.

Barry,

Thanks Barry - if it's the same spot as in 2009 I may have an old set of directions the late Jeff Theobald gave me

One of my intentions in locating the spot is to get some good photos for the magazine - and I'm happy for you to have any that may be useful to you. I'll also put together a piece on my adventures on the London-Brighton.

As my long trip comes to a close very soon I might have to make it next time in a couple of years to come up and see you and Sandra. It was great meeting you in Australia. And I hope the Doble recovered okay after the throttle trouble in Australia.

As you inherited the magazine archive you would have my photos from the last time I was over at this time of year - I gave copies of all those photos to Jeff. I'll send you any decent ones I get this year too

Best wishes

Jerry Everard

Many thanks Brian - See you there

Haven't seen the October magazine yet as I've been travelling since mid Sept :-)


Chers

Just arrived back in Australia - yes I took plenty of photos and will be processing them soon. It was a great day - excellent weather (a real contrast from 2009!).

I'll pen a little something for the magazine and send over the photos Barry - I'll post a few here too. Also took some video that I'm happy to send over for the website :-)
