    Houses "tied" to the Cowdrey Estate (famous for polo) are easily recognised by their yellow window frames...

    The town is largely unspoilt, but the A272 is a major road and there is no by-pass. The narrow streets can be tricky with busy summer traffic!...Petworth 3.jpg

    After spending the day with SWMBO's mother and enjoying a delicious lunch prepared for us by her, we drove back home on the same roads, a chilly, classic top down drive into the sunset...

    Re: Spring is Sprung

    Yep I do miss being closer to the south coast.How many other Rennteam members have National Trust stickers on their windscreen I wonder? That's two of us then!

    For those Rennteamers that don't know, the National Trust is a charity (independent of the government) that owns, maintains and restores many historic old country houses, gardens, and heritage sites. http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk  For a membership fee you gain free entry to all their sites, and free car parking with the sticker.

    I used the fine weather to wash the car yesterday.The mixed blessing with Seal is that you can't tell when it's really dirty. You certainly get to appreciate the beautiful curves when it's nice and shiny. Really need to do a post-winter detail.

    Yesterday's trip was more South Downs than South Coast. Smiley Petworth's narrow streets and that high stone wall were just made for PSE Smiley

    My turn this morning to wash the car. Once the weather warms up a bit more I'll give it the Zymol treatment again. (wax doesn't bond properly below 20 deg C, apparently).

    One of our favourite NT sites,  is Stourhead, not that far from you. We nearly always go there in the Spring if you fancy meeting up. Smiley

    You may have noticed I'm still flying the 2008 NT sticker - this year's one is buried whilst our home is a building site....Smiley

    Stourhead is an excellent place, I love the eccentric grottos built around the lake. Would be good to meet up there, certainly.

    Re: Spring is Sprung

    Beautiful cars/ Beautiful roads.  Beautiful blue skies / Beautiful blue BMW & Porsche....

    Makes me want to take the day off and drive up the Coast.

    Happy Motoring Dreamcar and thanks for sharing.
