Coventry - Ticket & Convoy details

Post by M60NJP » 17 Aug 2014, 11:10

I went for a look-see earlier - not the easiest venue to arrange a convoy as there' virtually nothing/nowhere nearby! Most folk will come in via the A45/46 which has no services nearby and I only found one lay-by which we might have squeezed 17 cars into, but it would only need a truck to 'overnight' there and we'd be stuck for an alternative!!

The nearest 'conurbation' is Coventry Airport which isn't exactly a hub of aviation activity either.....but!

I found one pub with a large car park which wasn't gated. It has letting rooms, but only 13 so with the car park holding 50+ there should be enough room. It is here:

The Oak at Baginton: http://thebagintonoak.co.uk/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I didn't see anywhere nearby for breakfast etc - sorry but there's not a lot of anything nearby! The pub is easy to find and get in/out of.

Access at Stoneleigh park is from 0800 and it opens to the public at 1000. The entrance is fairly wide and although traffic will be busy, the show is over 2 days so many vehicles will (may?!) already be there. SP is about 10 mins from The Oak so please aim to arrive at 0815 with a view to leaving at 0830 sharp
. I have all the tickets which we'll hand out as members arrive as per usual. We'll try and convoy to SP together but it's country lanes so I'd suggest everyone sets their satnav (CV8 2LG) or comes with a map and directions as one long line of 17 cars might be too much of a challenge!!

Good work mate, is it worth asking the pub if they'll do some food?

Just spoken to the pub - they're happy to prepare breakfasts for folk if required - full English with toast, tea/coffee and cereal for £7.95 per person. We do need to confirm in advance to give them a fighting chance and get ingredients etc. So please post up next to your name if you'd like a fry-up - do though be prepared to commit as it's not fair on the pub if people order and don't turn up! Realistically, 'diners' will need to be there at 0745 at the latest.
