    Default We haven't done Coventry, have we? (Spring 2018?)

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

    There's two JDWs in that list, that won't go down well in certain quarters. Some of the group will be revolting!

    Just thought I'd move this into a separate thread otherwise it may get lost in the Stockport one

    Good grief! It's two years since I went to Coventry and enjoyed it a lot more than I expected. I only went to one non-Spoons which has now closed. One problem is that it's further than I would like to walk between the centre and Earlsdon but there are buses. On the plus side it's fairly easily accessible by rail from most of England.

    I presumed Coventry was a spoof suggestion!

    If it was then I've been hung out to dry! There are certainly better places in the Midlands.

    How very dare you! It was a serious suggestion after reading someone or others blog, Retired Martin? BRAPA? anyway one of them bloggy things and it looked OK

    Yes there are better places in the Midlands but we've done Brum, we've done Rugby and Leicester and we've done the best of the Black Country so where next?

    Could be Stourbridge (closed during the day?)
    Walsall
    West Bromwich
    Worcester
    Severn Valley Railway or just Kidderminster
    Warwick
    Lichfield
    Nuneaton

    I was thinking more Stafford, Loughborough or Newcastle Under Lyme. Surely Stourbridge pubs are open at 12:00 on a Friday? It isn't on the main drag rail wise but for rail enthusiasts that haven't yet been on the "Boneshaker Shuttle" it may add kudos.
    I went to Warwick recently and was unimpressed. I mainly went as it's less than a fiver each way for me and I wanted to visit the Project William pub. I also wanted to make sure that the hordes of tourist shoppers no longer got on the train at Bicester (they don't). At least the JDW was much improved.
