Little Red Rooster…

By July 28, 2016Headline News

Beggar’s Roost in Devon, U.K. is a notorious test hill which featured in many of the national trials that took place over the course of the first half of the last century. Plenty of  pre-war Minors successfully reached its summit while competing in these events and one 1930 MG Midget (RX 6795) famously ascended the ‘Roost’ 100 times without stopping. The ‘Beggar’s Roost’ sign pictured here is simply the name of a bungalow located approximately two metres above sea level and adjacent to a large fen  deep in a very flat part of rural Suffolk.
