Went for a bike ride (pedal !) this morning and ended up on some of the little roads that my dad used to go on when he would take me to Castle Howard Hill Climb in the '60s. The track was very narrow with a hairpin that was almost impossible to get round in a single seater, certainly no chance of a track licence nowadays. It used to finish in front of the stately home, very picturesque although as a young boy i wasn't interested in such things. I only had eyes for Minis and a nose for Castrol R ! Top photo is at Olivers Mount in '68, bottom is Castle Howard in '67.
