Eastern - Derbyshire Weekender - Friday May 10th to Sunday May 12th - Staying at The Premier Inn, Buxton

Good Afternoon

The North-West Norfolk (Kings Lynn) Meet, in conjunction with Burton, Lesley and other members of the Peaks and Pennines Region have arranged a weekend away in Derbyshire from Friday 10th May to Sunday 12th May, staying at the Premier Inn, Buxton. (see details below)

Whilst we would love to make this an open event, hotel accommodation and the logistics of keeping a large group of cars together in unfamiliar territory simply does not permit it, therefore, we are afraid we are limiting this event to 20 cars. (places will be allocated on a 1st come, 1st served basis).

Plans are in the preliminary stage, however, this is the likely itinerary:

Day 1. Friday 10th May: Meet at The Premier Inn, Kings Lynn, (A17 / A47, Pullover roundabout) at 11:00hrs. Travel to Buxton via the A17 to Newark, A617 to Mansfield / Chesterfield, A619 to Ashford in the Water, before picking up the A6 into Buxton.

Day 2. Saturday 11th May: Burton and Lesley Marshland (Joint A/C’s Peaks and Pennines), have kindly agreed to plan and lead a 125 - 150 mile run that takes in the best driving roads and scenery in the Peak District, (other members of the Peaks and Pennines will join us at The Derwent Dam), for the remainder of the run.

Day 3. Sunday 12th May: After breakfast, we plan to visit The Great British Car Journey Museum near Matlock, (optional) before returning home.

If you are unable to join us at the above mentioned meeting point, might we suggest that if that is the case it would be easier to meet at The Premier Inn, Buxton on Friday 10th or even Saturday 11th (by 09:30hrs)

If you would like to join us on what we think will be a fantastic weekend, please let us know by Sunday 10th March 2024. (If you do wish to join us please ensure you make your own booking).

Kind regards

Barry and Andy

This sounds like fun but I don’t fit into either region.
Are guests welcome for the Saturday only?




Good Morning

Thanks for contacting us regarding the Derbyshire Weekender, as a friendly and welcoming region, we would be happy for you to join us for the Saturday of our weekend escapade,. I will confirm the full details with you once everything is in place and timings have been finalised.

Incidentally, which area are you from, just so that I know how far afield we are attracting O/C Members.

Kind regards

Hi Barry, that’s great thanks.
I’m in Lincoln so it will give me the excuse I need to get over to the Peaks.
Having a local guide for the better roads will be ideal.
I’ll keep an eye out for updates.
