My Dad bought an old Lanchester in 1947. For ages when there was petrol rationing it stayed in the shared entry of our end-of-terrace house. One day it was taken out to transport us all to visit my grandmother's sisters in Grantham. We got as far as the Leicester ring-road when the 'big-end' gave up and we ground to a halt. I cannot remember how we all got home, but it was probably by bus from Leicester. I made the same journey (successfully) by bike when I was fifteen. This was a matter of conjecture from my peers as I was not in the least athletic. However, I did accomplish the 57 miles and after staying with the great-aunts, made the return journey and took a photo of water issuing from a pipe from a natural spring near Kroxton Kerriel to prove it.

A good one Morgana, 'Mo's were in in those days but not safety issues by the look of it. They must have hard earned their money in those days.

Yes I would say they earned their money, not much light going in there either which wouldn't have been good for their health. Edited by member, 27th Jun 2015 11:40 am
