Raid Northern England 2005

After the Kelso World Meeting of 2CV Friends 2005, which was held at a spectacular site at Floors Castle and provided great fun for everybody there (in spite of rain and cold), a group of about 15 2CVs formed to explore the North of England, guided by Lynn and Andy, a couple who proved to have an excellent knowledge of the region we travelled through. Raiders came from different European countries like Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, France, the Netherlands, the UK and Austria.

The route took us to Hadrian's wall, through the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales and ended up at Castle Howard.
