Hack Green

Loz and myself went for a ride out yesterday to Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker near Nantwich. Hack Green played a central role in the defence of Britain for almost sixty years (

If you look at the sign in the middle of the picture it says "bikini alert". I'm not sure if it has something to do with very friendly female staff, voyeuristic male staff or something to do with fallout!!

To get there we took the A5 up past Western Park, turned right onto the A41 towards Whitchurch, deviated off onto the A529 past Market Drayton and through a very nice village called Audlem. We couldn't have timed it better because Audlem was hosting its annual festival of transport. There must have been over 200 classic vehicles all driving in a procession through the village. From there we continued on the A529 until we got to Nantwich. Our return journey saw us coming back down the A51. If you take out the A5 and the last part of the A51 from Stone to Rugeley which are both littered with speed cameras, the rest of the journey was on great roads with plenty of twisty stuff. All in all a great day out.
