Sundays are when like-minded people get together and here, at a suitable staging post, three local Scooter groups had gathered. They were all off to Epping where other scooter groups from all over the south of England were going for a meet. I caught up with them as they were about to set off on the next stage of their journey.
This departure had the feel, I imagine, of how it was in times long ago when the old coaches set off on their journey from here. Refreshed and ready to go today, they left in a sweeping two by two line, with the slow coach at the rear. However, each beast now has at least ten horse power rather than just the one of the past.
