This year we are starting the event from Downham Home & Garden on the edge of Downham Market. We will be heading south east from there on an extensive drive in the Thetford locality before we stop for lunch at Lynford Hall Hotel. We have secured permission from Forestry England to use the adjacent ‘Bull Ride’ area for picnics. Our finish was last visited in 1999 by our rally: Ickworth House in Suffolk is a neoclassical building set in parkland. It is the former residence of the Marquess of Bristol before being sold to the National Trust in 1998. Here you will be able to visit the West Wing, its tea room and gift shop. We are hopeful there will also be access to the Rotunda.
