The suggestion is that other area take a scenic route from one of their meeting points, arrive at Rowsley around mid day to picnic and socialise, those that want to could catch the 13:28 steam train to Matlock, have a wonder around Matlock, and catch the 16:28 train back to the picnic area.

Whilst it would be ideal if members arrived in their MX5, those camping could come across in a larger vehicle with their camping gear in it, or a Motorhome or caravan, they would be parked in the camping area a short distance from the MX5’s
