Club Chapter Coordinator Suzy Compton is organising this day out with a visit to the Jurassic Coast, a picnic and time to explore a ghost village and then some time at gorgeous Lulworth Cove with delicious Figaro convoy drives in between each place then keep Sunday June 11th free!
The start point will be Smugglers Inn at Osmington Mills, DT3 6HF. They kindly hosted the start of my first rally Figaros Go Jurassic back in 2014, they have a cool car park that overlooks the sea. I am still sorting out times but I expect we will meet mid-morning, then set out in a jolly convoy heading East to Tyneham village through some spectacular countryside. The village was requisitioned by the Army during WW2, and never given back to the residents. We will have enough time there to explore, the village is mostly in ruins now but the church, a farm and the school are beautifully preserved and they tell the story of what happened to the village. As the village was last inhabited in 1943 there is no cafe or shop, but there are toilets. Picnics and a blanket will be needed, let’s hope we can safely leave umbrellas at home! After this we will convoy down to Lulworth Cove, a beautiful horseshoe shaped cove with incredible world famous geology, a visitors centre, numerous pubs and cafes for cream teas or ice-creams. It should be a great day out, I hope some of you can join me!
There will a £4 fee for parking at Lulworth Cove. Dogs are welcome at the Smugglers Inn, Tyneham and at Lulworth Cove they are allowed on the beach and in some of the cafes and shops.
It’s always so much fun to meet other Figaro owners and driving together is amazing!
