Chichester, to be precise. Quite a nice place actually. And the only clues so far are, it fulfills Squire's requirements for motoring. So it has a bench front seat and column change..

We thought it would be nice to get the train down, but London is being difficult this weekend.

So we're on a dismally grim wet motorway.

But this is too:

One lesson has been learned - we aren't using the railway this time! We might have done, but London is being difficult this weekend and every trip south involved several changes and took longer than driving.

We're 405ing south.

Chichester is quite a nice place, mostly... just down the A27 from me too.

I was going to suggest you northern monkeys get your strongest sun tan lotion on when you get here, being from the grim north you’ve likely never seen the sun before! However, it appears you’ve picked normal northern weather to do this in today!

Best of luck anyway, bench seats and column shift = awesome.

I delayed us slightly by demanding stop at a crowded service station to use the facilities rather than peeing out of the window of a moving car.

But finally, a worthwhile spot:
