    Leaving Bath and on the Frome avoiding line on the way out and a very noisy ascent of Brewham and sparky run through Oldfield Park in the evening.

    Nice shots, glad the sun came out at the last minute and I'm not visible in your shot at the edge of the field (unless you look very carefully!)

    That climb of Brewham was one one of the noisiest climbs we've witnessed behind an A4. Made the hairs on the back of the neck stand on end. Think they took the spark arrestor out at Bath!!!

    My footage of what many are saying could be No.9's final run west of Bristol. She certainly didn't disappoint! Filmed at Newton St Loe (funnily enough, running alongside the A4!), Marlands, Goodrington and Cockwood Harbour. I hope you enjoy it! :)
