Lake District Weekender 9th-11th June 2023. We’ve talked about organising a weekend social run for some time now. Well, this year we are doing it.
The destination is the South Lake District and the historic market town of Ulverston.
The main attraction for the weekend will be a Saturday visit to the Lakeland Motor Museum. You may combine this experience with a lake cruise or heritage steam railway trip. The Lakeland Motor Museum have confirmed their club car park will be made available to us on arrival and we will receive a 10% discount on museum admission prices.
There are a number of other attractions in the area you may wish to see while you’re there. These include; the Conishead Priory, Hoad Monument, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, the Laurel & Hardy Museum, the Comedy Mill, the Ulverston Canal and the Manjushri Kadampa Meditation & Peace Centre.
