HOME               R26 Scenic Drive - 17th July 2005

Several of us met up at our usual starting place in Dorchester, at 13.00 we headed of to meet up with the rest of those attending at Folke Golf Centre. We had three new cars come along and join in with 6 very keen PCGB members in them. One new member was particularly grateful of Alan K's skills when his 911 died with a electrical fault, Alan rolled up his sleeves and got them back on the road.

After a catch up and hello chat the 13 Porsches started the drive through some lovely country side to Compton Abbas Airfield. We had a FUEL stop and enjoyed watching the light aircraft taking off and landing.

Compton Abbas Airfield is open most days, the airfields bar and restaurant may close earlier than the airfield itself. For more information call 01747 811767. Compton Abbas Airfield stands on the top of a hill and is a very beautiful area of the UK. I'm told it is at 800+ feet above sea level, so you need a head for heights before you even get in a plane!

After enjoying our refreshments we went on our 2nd leg to Kingston Lacy Mansion, a elegant mansion set int the Dorset countryside. We parked up under a wonderful tree creating some shade on this very hot day and paid our 5 to enjoy the formal gardens and parkland.
