Misty Quest

Whilst looking through The Great Book of Quest. I found to my surprise I had yet to visit Grove. Now Grove is a village only around 7 miles away, not really sure how I had failed to go there. Having to get a few items from a shop in Abingdon I would then take a bit of a circular route to Grove
This vehicle on the outskirts of Shippon has been parked here for the last couple of weeks.
The weather today was chilly, misty and murky this row of cottages in Fyfield is one I always enjoy riding past.
Finally get to Grove, this is the Old Post Office. Today’s choice of bike was my Dawes single speed picked as the today was pretty flat.
Factory entrance on the edge of Grove, not sure of the ongoing fortunes of Williams F1 team, years ago that’s all you would read or hear about in the local media.
From here it would be a quick 7 miles back home and a warm welcome.
Another good morning out on the bike even managing an unexpected Quest location bagged

    Looks like a damp, chilly ride. Hope you had a cup of hot chocolate to recover. By the way, the “police aware” sticker was something new and unfamiliar to me.

      Hi Bill
      In Illinois anyway, police will place a sticker on an abandoned vehicle showing it has been checked out, so the next officer by doesn’t have to investigate it again.

      Hi Bill its something the police have been doing for a number of years now.

    As much as I liked the pictures from your bike ride, I was MOST impressed the excellent penmanship in “The Book of Quest.”

      Thanks Greg, though I feel I need to correct you, it is in fact The GREAT Book of Quest.

    It’s always nice when you forget one that is easy to grab 🙂 The photos definitely have the stereotypical English winter look to them. They mark the cars similarly here, but I’m wondering how that one managed to get in that position – did they slide in sideways?

      Em, I wondered that at the time, yes it was a pretty grim day.
