Found a private Aire through the CCI web site that sounded ideal. After some discussion we decided to make our way there.
On a arrival at the France Passion Aire we found that Mike had damaged his trailer in the first aborted gas stop in the morning. The farmer and his son gave Mike a hand in trying to make a temporary repair by levering the trailer back straight.
In the afternoon went up to the town. Shops were open even though it was a bank holiday. We also looked around the old church. The town was lovely and would like to return some day.
