This is the proposed route - it takes in those nice roads through Bramerton - Rockland - Langley - Loddon then from Hales - Haddiscoe - St Olaves (more good roads). Maybe stop at St Olaves The Bell PH as a half way point?
Then it's down past Somerleyton Hall and Oulton Broad and eventually Southwold.

At Southwold there's a nice place for lots of Minis to park up behind the famous multi-coloured beach huts by the pier (hopefully there will be space for us!):
Clicky!

...and according to Johnnie, the pier and it's arcades are something to behold!


Possible route: (Approx. 1h40m, about 45 miles):

I am now up for this. I drove the Super Cooper today for the first time in 5 months into Norwich.
It started and it went, so all is well.

I'm out I'm afraid. Everything I touch on the car seems to lead to two more problems.
need to concentrate on Italy so have a good time. Looks like Gumballs a bit jinxed for me

Craig the roads on the way back were awsome and those corners were the mutts nutts in the mini.. Dave broke my car on the way back.. had no speedo but thats fine as he judged his speed off the rev counter lol.. and seems your sat nav shaved a few miles off as he and marie took all the main roads..
