A Pilgrimage

Murray and Christine's daughter was over in London for a visit so we all set off on a jaunt to Abingdon. Abingdon is a special place for us old MGs as it is where were were built and the Abingdon Tourist Office has produced a flyer showing the old routes that were used for test drives as each new car was completed.

These routes varied over the years but we went back to the same route that I was first driven over some 60 years previously.

To be brutally honest, after all the miles I have covered since, over 111,000, I can't really say I remember it all that well, but it was a lovely drive through the Oxfordshire countryside all the same.
