The start and finish of the event is set in the grounds of the stunning Lamport Hall which was developed from a Tudor Manor and is now best known for its classical frontage. This was started by John Webb in 1655 and completed in the eighteenth century, to the design of Francis Smith of Warwick.

The event organisers are extremely grateful to Mr G. P. S. Drye, Executive Director of the

Lamport Hall Preservation Trust Ltd and his staff for making the event possible and for more details of this magnificent country house visit their web site at http://www.lamporthall.co.uk

Lamport Hall can be found just off the A508 off Jnt 2 off the A14 and head south to Northampton

Lamport Hall, Northampton, NN6 9HD

The event is a 35 mile loop taking in some of the most interesting country houses and historical sites in England and as well as Lamport includes Naseby, Althorp (home of the Spencer family), Cottesbrooke, evidently the house Jane Austen used as the basis for Mansfield Park as well some stunning countryside.

The start will be at 09.30 and we will provide well stocked Check Point/Feed Stations at many of the points of historical interest.
