BRONTE ROAD RUN - Sunday 28th Dec 2008

Post by broadsword » Mon Dec 29, 2008 4:21 pm

Hi Everyone,

thought I would post a fer photos from yesterdays Bronte road run around the Keighley and Haworth areas of West Yorkshire, a charity event in aid of the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. Went by car (its 20 miles there,20 miles back and 20 miles of road run which in the temperatures yesterday would have put me in hospital!!) and met up at the half way point, the Grouse Inn where the run stops for mince pies and coffee. A great selection of tractors and cars on show - particulary good selction of Internationals which are normally a bit thin at road runs but of course they built em in Bradford only 10 miles away from the road run. Raymond Townend was on his Yellow 1394(?)Industrial not sure if any other members were there.
A really well organised road run and the scenery around that area is absolutely stunning.
Have posted a few non DB piccies as well.

Regards

Andy

Good photos Andrew. Thank you for posting them.

Interesting comment that you made in the battery thread re: leaving the lights on while charging with the alternator. Never heard that before.

Hi everyone,
The date for the second run on the list should be July not June. Just thought I should let you know incase anyone was thinking of penciling this one in their diaries.
Many thanks

Hi David(allsorts),

welcome to the DBTC forum - thanks for the e-mail, lucky I notified you of the photo bits,you may have been awash with tractors a month early!!

Count me in on the April and July events, will try to get accross with the 990, if not I`m sure someone lives locally who may lend me a tractor for the day :wink: .

Phil, sorry not to invite you - went at late notice and took the better half for a day out (Tractors and then Steam trains on the Worth Valley railway - oh and I bought her lunch to keep her happy :roll: )

Perhaps we could go on the next run thats assuming 6 POT ever sees tarmac/runs again :lol:

Good photography of good machinery. It must of been a good 'run', being complete with mince pie...........
The stonewall is a piece of art! Do you have a detail pic of it ? A gateway or an end or a corner? It would be nice to see one of those even with a tractor in front :)
Happy New Year

Hi JimP,

its all relative really - we`ve loads of these stone wall things over here and we do not notice them much - however you have frozen lakes and reindeer making their way accross fields of snow knee deep that we woould die for!!!.

Funnily enough though on the track where the tractors were being parked there was a guy(opposite to the JCB digger) that was Dry Stone Walling(ie repairing the wall) - its quite an art as they are double walled - there are two side the middle being full of infillings(ie broken/crushed stone) and the outer bits are curved inwards as the wall gets taller to hold it together - I used to help the local farmer (Joseph senior) about 30 years ago, he did the outer bits and I did the infilling!!!

We have loads round here - will try to get a photo of a tall/impressive one for you.

Regards

Andy

Hi all,

Quick update as to new total.
When we finally get all our money in from our main two sponsors we should have raised over £3600 which smashes last years great efforts of just under £3000.

Kind regards

David.
