Water and Steam Ride
August 29, 2021 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Departing from Jack’s Hill Cafe on Sunday 29th August.
Why not come and join us for a ride over to Shropshire and Daniel’s Water Mill, situated right underneath the Severn Valley Railway
The route in total will be just under 150 miles from Jacks to the last stop at Tamworth Services (A5/M42). Our route will be to Banbury and pick up M40 north. Coming off for Stratford we head for Worcester (on the A46 then A422)andstopattheShellservicesontheA4440NunneryWayNunneryPark,WorcesterWR40SX. After
refreshments, fuel and toilets, we head towards Kidderminster and turn off going through Stourbridge on Severn. From here it’s on to Bewdley and then through the Wyre Forest taking a scenic route along the Severn Valley Railway route – arriving at our Destination – Daniel’s Mill just south of Bridgenorth WV16 5JL
The mill and Rosalie’s tea room are situated in a beautiful setting under a viaduct of the Severn Valley Railway. If we time it right we may get one or two steam trains go overhead.
I have booked us in to the tea room for lunch – fairly simple – cream teas, cakes, sandwiches, bacon rolls, pork or ploughmans pie, ice cream etc.
I have also arranged a tour of the mill. It is a working mill but for our visit it may not be working as they have yet to fix some flood damage to the exterior walls. Cost will be about £4-5.
You can also walk up into the woods the other side of the viaduct.
The route back will via the A454 Bridgenorth to Wolverhampton – a nice open road – then following the signs for Cannock it’s the A460 until we meet the A5. I will stop at Tamworth services B77 5PS for fuel and comfort stop and effectively end the ride there as some may wish to return home down M42/M40 or continue down the A5.
Finally, this ride require decent weather – therefore if the forecast is poor for the day I will postpone. Keep an eye out on the chapter website, facebook, email.
