Return to the Royal Forest Hotel
at Chingford


This mini-rally has been running for many years and, although we have never previously been able to attend, RT1784 has been there with previous owners - in 1990 and 1992 we think.

The event re-lives the old practice of using the forecourt of the Royal Forest Hotel as a bus terminus, which was the norm here until 1968.
