Come and join in the Layer Marney Cup Re-Run – a car fuel consumption trial first run 103 years ago. The new route for 2017 will be from Audley End to Layer Marney Tower. It isn’t a race, but rather, best fuel consumption on the day. There are classes for all types of cars in decades from 1914, so, modern or old. Cars can take part without being in the actual Fuel Consumption Trial. For further information and a booking form and entrance charges for participating cars please email
General visitors (house opening prices apply, see below) can enjoy the cars finishing at Layer Marney Tower. Time of arrival isn’t certain, but from mid afternoon.
Please note – we are closed on Fridays and Saturdays.
Note we are open next week from Sunday to Thursday for bottle feeding the lambs then again on Easter Sunday and Monday
