    Default Derby in November

    As discussed here, it seems we are going to Derby for the Autumn crawl. Anyone have any proposals for the date? In the past, we've mostly gone for the second Friday (see http://forums.pubsgalore.co.uk/showt...-of-PuG-crawls for details). This year that would be Friday the 13th, so anyone who objects to this on superstitious grounds needs to speak up. Train tickets for this week will be going on sale in about two weeks, so a decision needs to be made soon.

    Dates fine with me, will have to see what the finances/train deals are like as to whether I attend this one or not a little nearer the time.

    Not sure about Ray yet, but I can manage Derby and the date is fine. Haven't had a good crawl round there for ages.

    Not sure about Ray yet, but I can make Derby OK. It's ages since we had a good crawl round there.

    Default Fifth attempt

    Feeling frustrated that this is the fifth time now that I have tried to post onto this thread to say I can make it to Derby but not sure if Ray can yet. Have I been blocked??

    Sorry about that. I can't see the post after I have entered it, so presumed it had not gone. When I try to edit or remove them, there is no save or ok button so they are all on and I cannot change them now.

    It's good to know you can come! Hope Ray can too.

    It would be interesting to hear people's thoughts on a possible route, as my experience of Derby is that there's quite a lot of distance between some of the worthwhile pubs, so we may want to use the buses. I'm thinking of places like The Peacock Inn, the Furnace Inn, the Five Lamps, the Horse & Groom, The Flower Pot, Mr Grundy's Tavern, the Golden Eagle, the Greyhound Inn, The Bell & Castle Inn and the Falstaff Tavern, all of which are outside the ring road and quite a long way from each other, not to mention from the station.

    Near the station are The Brunswick Inn and The Alexandra Hotel, one of which would be a good place to start and the other to finish, though I'm sure someone will propose The Babington Arms (JD Wetherspoon) for an earlier meet up. In the centre there's Ye Olde Dolphin Inne, of course, and The Flower Pot. Any more worth doing within the ring road?
