    Unbelievable, left lytchett minster 9.45 got to colchester 3.30 traffic was horrendous on m3 and m25. Was getting low on diesel on a12 pulled in a esso garage just before colchester, an amazing £1.56 per litre. Apart from that and the lovely rain virtually all of the journey. It's been a good day.

    Had the same last week when going to Yeldham! One long trip! M25 was slow all the way round, took 9 hours from Cornwall. Fuel is expensive there too! I think the one near Freeport was £1.46 - (£1.44 seemed to be average)......£1.39 in Cornwall!

    Look on the bright side.....you met my great (a few times) grandad, hung on the wall of the manor!:thumb:

    Yep travelled all the way from south France no hold ups, apart little diversion at Rouen, back off the ferry this morning traffic backed up then tail backs on the M 25, great to be back.
