Oooh!

Same dates as the Shepton Mallet show but we used to live in Nailsea, which is next door to the Tyntesfield estate.

Hmm. . . .pondering in operation.

What is Tyntesfield House grounds like Paul, have you been? I know the top part of Somerset well but only as I used to use the sticks often to escape the traffic jams often. Good to see you may come along to some of the ideas anyway, there are loads on this year and as you say is a pity so many clash.

Haven't been there for many years as we moved away from Nailsea in 2007 and it was several years before that when we visited.

However, it is a lovely place and should be a great place for a classic car show.

It will certainly do our Rover's justice! :cool

This is very close to me - about 3 miles. Strictly speaking, it's in Wraxhall, North Somerset which is a stones throw from Bristol - unlike the Bristol Classic Car show that isn't in Bristol at all.

Anyway, is anyone thinking of going to this. I might try to register and see if I can display a car - probably our MG ZT - if only to have a look round the house and grounds. It is a National Trust property so if you're not a member it is usually quite expensive to get into.

The house was once owned by Lord Wraxhall until he died in 2001. He had no children and as none of the many beneficiaries of his estate could afford to buy the others out, the property was put up for sale. Kylie Minogue tried to buy it, which would have been interesting, but in the end it was sold to the National Trust, which is not. The best bit is the chapel (which is actually more like a mini-cathedral).

Anyway - is anyone else up for this?
