Bowhill House, Selkirk, Scottish Borders, TD7 5ET.

Bowhill House is a historic house near Bowhill at Selkirk in the Scottish Borders area of Scotland. It is a member of the Historic Houses Association, and is one of the homes of the Duke of Buccleuch. Organised by John Anderson, the property is definitely a hidden gem, private guided tour and buffet lunch in the tearooms. Excellent turnout, weather and an all round good day.

Shandy Hall – 26 April 2015

Shandy Hall is located in a small village in North Yorkshire, just south of Thirsk. The Hall was the home of Laurence Sterne, writer of “The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman”, and was renamed after the “hero” of the book. Sterne used a number of radical techniques in his book including, for example, indicating that on the next page was a picture of the most beautiful woman in the world. Turn the page and it is blank leaving the image to the reader’s imagination.

NORMOG met at the Fauconberg Arms for morning coffee and then toured the local church where Sterne was appointed vicar in 1760. In the church are some remarkable murals and carvings. After the church the group took a tour of Shandy Hall and gardens. The tours were accompanied by a very detailed and interesting talk by the Hall curator, who gave a fascinating insight into Sterne’s life and success. The day ended back at the Fauconberg Arms for lunch.

Winter Driving

Most people do not use their Morgans during the winter months but Sylvia & Dennis O'Neil do, although they now pick our days, rather than driving in conditions they used to. Dennis is hoping to have a talk at the next meeting about preparing the car for winter use and things to do if you lay the car up in the garage for the winter which can cover several months.

Eshott Airfield – 21 June 2015

This is a small World War 2 airfield near Felton in Northumberland, it now caters purely for private aircraft. Sadly it was cold and rainy most of the day, which was particularly bad for the 3 AC Cobra owners – no roofs for their cars.

Cummins Diesels – 11 July 2015

Cummins were planning a celebration day for their 50th anniversary. NORMOG turned out 24 cars for the day, by far the biggest group of cars at the event. There was a great range of events, entertainment and facilities on the day including a free lunch. A wide range of vehicles had been assembled, old and new – traction engines to double decker buses. There was also a tour of the factory. A great day out.
