    Default Autumn/Winter PuG Crawl 2016 ?

    With advanced rail fare tickets now going on sale for November,it seems appropriate to start a thread to see where and on which date the next crawl should occur.

    From previous discussions earlier in the year I think we are firm that it will be somewhere in "The North",so to kick things off can I nominate Manchester and Huddersfield as two possible contenders,although I do accept that Manchester may well take a weekend to do it justice.

    How about Ludlow? Mid/central location, historic and a centrally located railway station.

    Looking back through the recent previous crawls ,should the next one not be in the midlands ?

    There was a bit of debate around this issue at the beginning of the year,and in an attempt to rebalance the historic bias against northern venues,the solution I thought was agreed for 2016 was The North (Hull),Oxford,The North. I'm not very good at linking to previous topics but that was my recollection.

    Given that the last poll for the Nurf gave us a straight fight between Huddersfield and Hull, should we just say Huddersfield and be done?

    Else it'll be a month before we've gone through the usual processes from scratch...

    Happy with Huddersfield, but I like the sound of Ludlow at some stage...

    If Huddersfield were to be decided upon, with a meeting date prior to 04Nov, it would give the southern based contingent a chance to book the London-Leeds leg (if still available on Virgin east coast offer, booking window ends 18Aug) at £7.25ew, then Leeds-Hudds for £7rtn...

    If not, do any southern folk fancy that as a randomer? I'm off to France tmw to a location without wifi, so this may fall flat for me!

    Ha! going to Ludlow for our annual hols in October. Any recommendations? We'll be staying close to the "parlour pub"!

    Never looked at pubs there, but I believe it's quite a foodie destination with a few Michelin stars scattered around..?
