MG Day at Middleton Hall August 17th 2014

Middleton Hall

Roger and Fran Bragger of the MG Octagon Car Club invites all MG owners to a day of interest at Middleton Hall near Tamworth, Staffs.

This will be a chance to gather in the Glade or the Orchard areas where you can natter about your cars and enjoy a picnic. There is a bar in the glade and light refreshments are available either in the Hall or in the courtyard of craft type shops.

I have sent this invitation to all the local natters, clubs and registers so they can, if they wish, organise a run to the Hall.  It will be open to all MG’s and it will be a pleasure to see convoys of MG’s, our pride and joy, making there way to Middleton.

You can look at the hall itself and learn about its history from 1245 to 1845.  It is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest.  It has been the home of two of the foremost British Naturalists, Francis Willoughby and John Ray.  It has a mediaeval lake, a walled garden a 16th Century jetted building and is home to the Peel collection.  Guided tours are included and will be available for all of the buildings and collections.

As the hall and its grounds are alongside the Middleton Lakes, an RSPB site, it is fully open and is one of the biggest reserves in the Midlands, we have arranged for guided tours for those interested in wild birds and flora of the area.

Amington Brass Band, an award winning band from Tamworth will be on site giving you a chance to listen to some wonderful music, whilst having your picnic in the grounds of this wonderful set of buildings.

The price for this day will be £15 per car for up to two passengers, which includes your plaque and any tour you choose to go on.

For more information and entry form, contact Fran Bragger on 01827 54692 or e mail frances.bragger@sky.com  As we have between 60 to 80 cars attending this day, early booking is advised.
