Brilliant sunshine but freezing temper- atures greeted 11 MVs braving the 2017 Roger’s Road Run. We met for breakfast at Wolverton House, Milton Keynes, before ambling through the lanes of North Bucks and South Northants. A soup stop near Hartwell saw Roger bring out the mince pies he forgot to distribute last year before we arrived at Northamptonshire Ironstone Railway Museum at Northampton. Here we were shown around the complex and told of the history of the area. Then it was a short drive to the Queen Eleanor pub for lunch. In our convoy were four Jeeps, four Land Rovers, a Ferret, DAF 66 and a Dodge Ram. Thanks go to Roger and Janet Higgerson and Gordon and Vicky Beale for organising this much looked forward to annual event.
