Classic Porsche - - News & Products -

Here's an­other date to put in your di­ary – and this time it's own own Porsche Pic­nic. Set in acres of beau­ti­ful grounds, Maple­durham House, near Read­ing, is the venue for our lowkey gath­er­ing on Sun­day 1st Oc­to­ber. The house is a Tourism South East award win­ner, of­ten seen in TV'S 'Mid­somer Mur­ders'. Not only that, but Maple­durham's wa­ter­mill was used as a lo­ca­tion in Michael Caine's 1976 film The Ea­gle Has Landed, and fea­tures on the cover of Black Sab­bath's 1970 de­but al­bum! It's a great venue for a Porsche show. The wa­ter­mill is the only op­er­a­tional mill on the Thames, the flour it pro­duces be­ing used to make the scones for Maple­durham's own tea room, which will be open on the day of the Pic­nic. Also open to the pub­lic on the day are the main house and wa­ter­mill (from 2pm), vis­i­tors to the Pic­nic be­ing of­fered a £4 dis­count on the usual £9 ad­mis­sion. For directions, go on-line to: www.maple­ The Pic­nic it­self will fol­low the tried-and-tested for­mula of a laid-back Porsche show run in con­junc­tion with our sis­ter mag­a­zine, 911 & Porsche World. In­for­mal­ity is the key-word, so bring your pic­nics (or in­dulge in a cream tea in the house) and head to Maple­durham. The venue opens at 10am. En­try is £5 per per­son, with un­der-11s free. For all en­quiries, in­clud­ing trade spa­ces, con­tact Wild­side on 0118 947 5200, or e-mail: wild­
