    I lived in Ramsbottom for two years near to the GBG listed Major. It's a good little drinking town which is a 20 minute bus ride from Bury tram Station (or a steam train ride from Bury [Bolton Steet Station]).

    I spent my first 40 drinking years in Manchester. Visited twice this year to the (mainly) new licence GBG bars and pubs around the Deansgate area which I thought to be very good.

    Chesterfield is further north than Chester!

    Ah, but Chester is in the "Northern" county of Cheshire, whilst Chesterfield is in the "Midland" county of Derbyshire.

    Dammit! I always thought Cheshire was in the Midlands.

    Ah the curse of thread drift.

    Well we've just about got the runners and riders (need to decide if it's Chester or Chesterfield that goes into the mix as we now have 11 northish destinations) so all that remains is to run the poll. It looks like we've got the date too.

    Chester was in the March 2016 poll and scored five votes.

    And after you condemned Chesterfield earlier in the thread, would anyone vote for it (even if it wasn't in the Midlands)?
