    Well done for raising this so quickly as it seems to take ages for decisions to be made. I believe it's the turn of the Midlands to have this inflicted upon them. I'm going to make two suggestions from left field, Loughborough and Newcastle Under Lyme, A bus goes from Stoke Rail Station to Newcastle but is the only one required.
    The SVR is another left field suggestion already aired. I've never been on the line and would love to give it a go but for me there would be just too much waking to include pubs in Kidderminster, Bridgnorth and Bewdley. However, I've not been to either of the pubs at each of the line and for me "two pubs is a crawl". I would have thought that Bridgnorth is worthy of a full day.

    Bridgnorth is well worth a day out but is a right pain in the backside to get to , the nearest main stations are Telford about 12 miles away and Wolverhampton about 14 miles away , the buses stop running around 5/530 ish to Telford/Wolvo , its better to do Bridgnorth as an overnighter .

    It's about 45 minutes from Wolverhampton bus station and the bus connects with the London train but you're probably right for people travelling from elsewhere.

    Lichfield is good but not sure how it’s fixed for public transport. My last visit was a coach trip. There’s also Stamford ditto transport. Burton of course ticks all boxes but has anyone not been?

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

    Lichfield City station is pretty central and has a new micropub around the corner.. The fact that it's only London Midland services apart from New Street may be a minus point. It's OK from London as you can get a cheap LM advance ticket on the 08:46 to Crewe.

    New street to Lichfield takes about half an hour and is £6.40 return. Trains are regular - about every 10 - 20 minutes.
    I know because they go through Aston !

    Lichfield Trent Valley is on the West Coast Main Line, and with a short hop on the Cross-City Line to Lichfield City that should open up more opportunities.
