Seven cars met at Forge Lane and the services on the old Seven Bridge off of the A48. The drive to the show took us up the M5 to junction 14 and from there it was only a stone's throw to Berkeley Castle. When we got there and drove onto the site we could see that the antique fair and the auto jumble as we went past was a good sign as it was bound to pull the crowds in and it sure done that.

Although we put up the gazebo and the flags we all sat outside, because it was such a nice day. Once morning coffee was over it was time to look at the cars and there were some real stunners there to look at. The girls soon found their way to the stalls of craft, handbags, antiques  and dresses and other tat while the boys rummaged through the auto jumble. Phillip managed to buy some spring loaded socket racks while we managed to keep our money in our pockets. Phillip also managed to lay out a ground sheet and sell quite a few car parts himself - he is turning into a proper Arthur Daley but he does have lots of things to sell.

The show ended at 4,00 so we waited for the mad rush to leave finished and with only a small amount of queuing managed to leave before boiling over it was still quite busy getting out. The rush to get home started and we all split up for the journey back to Wales.
