CoLJ 9 - Roman Way to The Conifers

After two weeks at Roman Way, Friday was time to move on to a new holiday cottage location, The Conifers, in Broadholme, near Lincoln.

We left Roman Way at approximately 10:00 hrs. in, we believe, a cleaner state than when we arrived. During our stay we became aware of a few more incidents where the level of cleanliness was not what we had expected. A few more percentage points off the satisfaction scale. Having said that overall it was comfortable and cosy though.

SatNavratilova told us that it should take us about 4 hours driving, and allowing for two, 30 minute, driving breaks be in Lincoln in the region of 15:00 hrs. We finally arrived at 17:15hrs. What she didn't take into consideration was a 30 minute wait to get through the Dartford Tunnel , and she couldn't have foreseen the 90 minutes that we were delayed on the notorious A14 road north of Cambridge due to a serious road accident which caused massive tailbacks of traffic. What was surprising was that our anti-clockwise journey on the dreaded M25, apart from the Dartford section , went far better than we expected. At one time on the A14 we were only 10 miles from the Cambridge services area and 25 minutes later we were still 5 miles from the area. Not a problem in itself except that the Costa coffee medium size café latte we drank earlier was having its affect! What would come first a visit to the services or to a farmers field?
