Although never quite in the same league as the Colmore and Gloucester trials, the Fedden was one of the more important trials using the Cotswold hills in the periods immediately before, and immediately after, the Second World War.
The 1935 event was run in the Mendips. All subsequent events were run in the ‘Southern Cotswolds’ and it’s memory lives on in two sections now used by Stroud & District Motor Club. Both Tin Pan Alley (aka Tramps Paradise) and Alf’s Delight are ex-Fedden sections, the latter being named after Alf Morrish, a stalwart of the Bristol Motor Club in the immediate PostWar period.
It became a single venue event during the 1950s and continues, to this day, as a round of the BTRDA and MSA Sporting Trials Championships.
List of past winners (1935 to 2008) compiled from the winner’s plates on the cup – With thanks to Duncan Stephens and Tony Streeting for providing me with the list.
