Clarion Club House History

Can anyone help Jill Woodward with her project? She writes:
Dear Tandem Club,

I am involved in some oral history about Clarion club House, Jinny Lane Pendle way.

On one visit we were told about a visit from a Tandem club on a meet. I realise there will be regional clubs but wonder if you know anything about this. It sounded like it was a few years ago. Ideally it would be great to get hold of a photo or two.

Thank you for your help

I have visited the Clarion Hut about 4 times by tandem but they were not visits by the tandem club but by Lancaster CTC and also on the Birthday Rides From Lancaster in 1996.
I do have a digital photo from a visit in 2004.
I may have earlier paper photos that I could scan but I haven't looked for them.
If Jill would like a copy of the digital photo I would need an email to send it to.
I also have a vague memory of an article about two Clarion Club Members doing an end to End. I think it must have been in the TandemClub Journal some time after 1993 when we joined. They had some sort of odd route as they claimed that as true Clarion Members they could not do a RIGHT TURN.
