Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

I hope Coniston steps-up, and gets out of the comfort of its own armchair and can put on a decent show in 2020. At least if this doesn't happen, they already have their excuse - BREXIT!! Hoping its not a coincidence that some members on the forum who requested removal after it was announced K7 would...

Re: Donald Campbell's restored Bluebird in museum home row

Would it be a fair comment that Coniston village and the surrounding area are generally supportive and receptive towards Bluebird K7 running on the lake, but are being stifled by the LDNPA? In terms of the amazing pic Mike posted of K7 being paraded up in Scotland and the massive crowd support, ther...
