How about a run up the Yorkshire Dales? A photo shoot (and general posing about) in Masham is always excellent as it's a beautiful village with a very large square. Then tea and biscuits at Swinton Park (optional, but my favourite restaurant and a place I organised previously for Celica Owners Club), up the road to Brymor Ice Cream Parlour (popular with all concerned) and then further awesome driving roads to wherever we fancy? Ribblehead Viaduct? Castle Bolton?
For lunch in this area I can recommend the Bistro at the Black Sheep Brewery, again, back in Masham.
I'm not getting my GT until mid September whilst others possibly end of the month. Suggest we consider the ice cream place early October? Just hope this October was like the first week of October last year when it was the mid to upper 20's Celsius.
