The Carrot Cruncher Cruise and Meet!!!

Okay, looking at where people are coming from it maybe easier to meet at the pub first as it is closer. The drive from the east over the mendips to the pub is great. The pub has a decent car park overlooked by the pub garden on the off chance we have some nice weather. Hmm oh well it is dry and warm in the pub :laugh:

The pub is called the Castle of Comfort, East Harptree.

Castle of Comfort East Harptree, Mendips

It is about 7 miles from the top of the gorge.

We could just meet up, stay and have lunch / drink and oh plenty of car talk :laugh:

If anybody is interested, we could go to Cheddar Gorge and back before or afterwards for a quick spin. Another option is a 20 mile round trip route I often take in the summer which is from the pub through Burrington Coombe (mini Cheddar Gorge), Churchill, Shipham, Cheddar, through the gorge back to the pub.

What do we think? Any other suggestions?

Welcome to The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Hi Mercedesrw, and welcome to SLKWorld from the UK Midlands! :)

If you manage to confirm a meet in the Somerset and Wiltshire area, I'll add your plans into the 2016 UK Meet Calendar. :D

Thanks, Dave

and fyi, you need 15 posts before you can get back with anyone via private messaging

see my welcome post on that
Sounds a good idea, depending on when :smile:
Depending on the date, might be tempted to cross the Hampshire Border.. :tu:
The OP is a new member but hasn't been back to the forum for the past 2 weeks... Hopefully he'll be back soon to respond to your interest in his proposed meet...

I didn't realise they'd opened the border... me too, in that case.
Sorry i have been away my internet went down i have been waiting. For my new one to arrive i still would like to arrange the meet. I was thinking the 26th of march at cheddar gorge if anyone is avalible or location can be changed if anyone has a good location?

I've added 26 March at Cheddar Gorge as a potential meet (to be confirmed) into the 2016 UK Meet Calendar thread - I'll update there if details change here. :D
Saturday 26th March good with me.

Cheddar is my neck of the woods, born and bread there. Great venue but will probably be busy and charging on all the car parks as that is Easter Saturday. If everyone is happy with venue I could suggest a meeting place outside the gorge and drive through Cheddar on the way for a spot of lunch at a great pub at the top of the gorge.

Happy to help with local knowledge whatever :smile:

I'm in North Bristol (near J19 M4)

I'm interested

The date and location (Cheddar Gorge or nearby) work for me.
I'm near Stonehenge, yes if I can get away from the kids and the weather good!
Outside off cheddar is ok with me
