Blaxhall Ship last week des' dinners 66
New landlord and a major transformation, it's a good sign when a country pub has a dozen customers on a Tuesday lunchtime. Six real ales (jolly good Timothy Taylor Landlord) and though NaTCH did serious damage to the home made steak and kidney he couldn't finish it. Other lunchers were John B and Matt and inevitably most conversation was about Matt's imminent departure from the Earl Soham Brewery to start his own brewery in the last working iron ore mine in Europe. The brewery is likely to be called the Red Man Brewery because the miners look red from the iron ore dust and the brewery's first beer is likely to be named Ol' Flo after the mine. AfAR from Nick (in Hungary) (first visit subsequent lunch previous lunch)

The rain was so heavy Saturday night it woke us up but we were still a bit surprised that the by road between Blaxhall and Tunstall was still flooded yesterday. A lady driver stopped to tell us the road was always flooding.

This may be a rambling and disconnected account of pub singing around the Blaxhall Ship in the 1970s but it shows the importance of a magnificent obsession to give us a record now ... and it's getting lively on the board about fuel prices.

Our first motocross this season and we arrived at Blaxhall to find the track is being run the other way round. Shouldn't have been a problem except we seemed to keep standing in the wrong place and getting coated in dust! Although the spectator facilities are about as basic as Snetterton (with Blaxhall having slightly more burger vans!) if you have the slightest suspicion you would enjoy the racing do go, it's a good day out ... and there might be some right smart arse t-shirts about.

We went to the motocross and like the riders, the marshals and everybody else got completely soaked!

Just follow the signs and there's a fun day out at Blaxhall motocross including national championships. Keep an eye on tinies as there's a lot of hurtling metal and get too close to the track and you might get sprayed with that sandy soil! The usual routine is practice in the morning and racing in the afternoon all organised by the Woodbridge and District Motor Cycle Club.
