To end the MINI runs for the year we went to Newminiseverns' Winter Solstice Run on 17th December 2006. This was a run originally planned by Fru-T-Bun around the lovely countryside of Wiltshire, taking in all those mid-winter pagan sites such as Stonehenge and Avebury. The run itself was quite a leisurely jaunt ending at the National Trust village of Lacock. This village has been used to film “Pride & Prejudice” , “Emma” and the Abbey for the interior of “Hogwarts” in the Harry Potter films. The Fox Talbot museum (inventor of the film negative) and previous owner of the village were open.
However, we ended the run in a delightful tea shop having afternoon tea with Jaffa and Carol and Lizzieminnie and her husband Caveman. This was a very pleasant end to a run that was managed very ably by Emu-P and TonyM in Fru-T-Bun's absence. Emu-P made an entertaining video of the run which can be viewed on YouTube.
