Ride out: Nuffield House c/o Ian Cummings email@example.com
Saturday July 10th rideout to Nuffield House (NT).
This was the home of William Morris (Lord Nuffield) the founder of Morris cars. It is now owned by the National Trust. The ride will stop at lunch time for a beer and baguette in Checkendon before a short ride to Nuffield House.
We will meet at Dobbies Garden Centre in Hungerford (RG17 0HE) at 10.00 for a 10.45 departure. Lunch will be at the The Black Horse in Checkendon (RG8 0TE).
This is an old fashioned country pub with considerable outside seating. The menu is limited to:
Baguette’s – Ham, Cheese, Coronation Chicken, Sausage, Bacon or Salad.
Chips or Cheesy chips.
From the Black Horse it is a short ride to Nuffield Place leaving at about 1.45 to arrive at 2pm. For those who don’t wish to visit Nuffield Place, the pub is also close to Greys Court National Trust and to Henley-on-Thames for the river and rowing museum and various tea shops and pubs.
If you wish to visit Nuffield Place you must book a timed entry with the National Trust. This can be booked from the National Trust web site any time from Friday the 2nd July. This requirement could change if government advice or National Trust policy changes.
The route from Hungerfield to Checkendon will use mainly A and B roads but there are small sections of single track road. Occasionally there will be some gravel.
