British Car Council 2014 Toy Run
October 5th, Country Heritage Park, Milton

I managed to make it to the run just short of 11:00 AM. There were 80 odd (and British) cars in the field ranging from the "driver" TR4 (still a favourite of mine) to a McLaren! In the half hour before the run I took the chance to do quick shotgun photos of all of the cars in the field.

The day was a perfect fall day. There were clouds in the sky blowing steadily east, but for the event there was not a drop of rain, only shafts of sunlight perfect for the season.

In the morning members of the Orange-Peel Morris entertained us all with traditional English folk dancing, Morris dancing.

The Orange-Peel Morris Dancers were heading out to the middle of the field for their first outdoor set in the morning.

There are variations in Morris around England

The Orange-Peel Morris dance and costume in a style from the bordering counties of Wales and North West England (the Borders).

From what I gathered last year, Morris was sort of a thumbed-nose gesture to the lord of the manor. Ragged jackets, turned inside out, with bells and hats adorned the members as a disguise.

Why the disguise?
Well, catching the ire of the Lord (of the Manor) wasn't good, especially if you have nicked the Lords pheasants, who's feathers also ended up as part of the costume.

I was told by one of the members that street busking grew out of this

Cars were still streaming in the last few minutes before the tour began
Jon Tipple pulled in with his 1973 Austin Mini 1000

The time was roughly 11:15 with the tour scheduled to begin at 11:30, could I get pictures of all of the cars in attendance? This was going to be an "f8 and Be There" round of pictures. There was nothing pretty in the pictures other than the cars. I know some of the cars, not all, and I will keep count!
