Just a thought for next year meet ups with a photo op. Jodrell bank, always wanted to go there after seeing Quartermass in the 70's. It'll be a photo with a great back drop:clap:

Jodrell bank, what a dump. It's living in a time warp total waste of time and money.

Raf cosford, different kettle of fish, highly recommended.

If you go to jodrell bank , take your wooly cardigan, geeky :blur: :blur: specs, slide rule and join the most boring lot of staff i've ever encountered. It's like the womens guild.
Foods crap, buildings crap,exhibition is tiny in a word very very poor. But i suppose they may shove that big radar telescope thingy up your exhaust pipe if you ask them nicely.

only thing wrong with cosford is it's shut at weekends otherwise excellent, staff are enthusiastic.

Jodrell bank was somewhere that as a pupil at schools close by used to be dragged there and it was ok once but after that boring but getting a picture close to one of the Radio Telescopes would need prior permission . what about a pic on the Millau bridge in southern france now that would be a good un :)

I thought i'd heard that tony about not being able to stop on the Millau bridge , maybe i'm biased but like the shot Bob took during this years Scottish Gathering of my RS at the Commando Monument as it looks all arty like and makes me think its a shot you would see in a brochure see below - deffo yours at Gibraltar is a good un too .​

Tony, maybe it's an opportunity to encourage people to take more photo's when they are out on their bikes and have a "Best Bike & background" Photo Competition in 2010 ?


:D
Brilliant,:clap: We could do with a section were we can post the pics like a notice board i've got rock of Gibralter and Millau viaduct, leaning tower of pisa, Monaco oh and the Humber bridge.

I'm not far, 45 miles the other side. I've passed it by on many occasions but never called. As regards the pros+cons of Jodrell, I agree with Tony would make a great photo backdrop :clap:

Hmmm, looks like it's a 'locals' only for Jodrell Bank then!! It would be a fun ride out, especially through the twisties at Twemlow Green. And for the really geeky, there's that bloody great big viaduct near by as a backdrop too!

Superb backdrop, gets my vote matey, just needs a Benelli in shot ! ;)

Ok, what if i convince the wife to changer her name to benelli. Does that count? :D

BTW the back drop is the source of the severn. (clewedog reservoir which is on the mountain road from llanidloes to machynlleth, powys, mid wales. A much recommended ride)

Bloody funny description. If I ever get over to your part of the world I'm going to check Jodrell Bank out just to see how acurate your description is. And then have a laugh. Cant wait to try the food. :rolling:
