    Default Derbyshire/Yorkshire in August

    My annual jaunt up to house/cat sit my Uncle's place in Dronfield has been confirmed. I am around 18-24th August so if anyone fancies a meet-up, I can do anywhere on the Derby-Notts-Sheffield-Wakefield-Leeds line and at a stretch can make Stockport, Bradford, Lincoln, York and Harrogate.

    Let me know.

    I'll certainly be around, so let me know what you're planning nearer the time and I'll see if I can fit in.

    I should be free that week so let me know what you're up to, anywhere down the Leeds - Sheffield, ECML, or Leeds - Manchester lines are fine for me, Harrogate or York even more so.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    ECML = East Coast Main Line?

    Sorry, Quinno. A last minute holiday means we're going to be away that week. Oh well, there's always next year.

    Boo to you!

    Funnily enough I am just starting to organise my Nurvern holiday as my new job has kept me busy - the two hours of 'me time' a day in my old place has rather diminished!

    So talking of my hols, I'll post up my draft schedule tomorrow evening and adjust it to suit other PUGers who are interested.

    Have a nice holiday Andy

    Bit late on the update but an all-day crawl of Salisbury on Saturday and a day of zorbing in Rutland took my spare time away.

    OB, I am definitely up for Harrogate - what day is good for you?

    Other jaunts inked in after research are Shipley-Saltaire-Bradford (new to me); The Grove, Huddersfield (loved it last year) via Leeds; Sheffield (outer pubs on the tram plus a Kelham Island revisit) and possibly Doncaster.

    Mr Hatter, are you available for any of the above?

    Spinko - how about Huddersfield and Leeds on the Friday?
