    Default Sheffield Crawl July 2019

    Doesn't look like I'll make this one I'm afraid.

    On the eve of the deadline Fri 12th July has emerged as the front runner. The next question is should the emphasis be on Kelham Island or the City Centre? I'm fairly relaxed over this but if pushed would opt for KI. My main objective for a 3 night stay is to try and get round some Thornbridge and Abbeydale pubs. Am I right in thinking that the Sheffield tram system is free to holders of the English Freedom Pass?

    Yes, apparently. https://www.stagecoachbus.com/supert...cket-info#tab8. Though remarkably few decent pubs are accessible via the tram system.

    I'll still have to pay though, as the anticipated winning date is two days before my 65th birthday.

    (And I won't qualify for the bus pass until the following May. Curses. )

    Thanks, I thought it was Sheffield that was free. The idea would be to use a mix of Trams and buses
    I'm pretty sure they do a 60+ pass in London. Is that just a London thing?

    The old gits bus pass is available when you reach state pension age which in Will's, and indeed my case, appears to be 66, the old gits Railcard of course is from 60 for a charge, The Lunnen thing is this.

    That is news to me and very interesting ob, thanks - some of us a with a couple of years to go had seen the freedom pass getting further away (mine is now 67), but for a small 'admin' charge, this baby appears to do the same magic...
    Thanks!

    I have put the date in the diary. We wouldn't be able to do the crawl with the rest of you Ray being as he is, but may see some of you during the day around the Kelham Island area. We will be in Sheffield tomorrow and our pubs tend to be Tap, Gardeners Rest, Cat and Kit, Shakespeare, Bar Stewards, and Wellington. If we can make it on the 12th July we will. Love Sheffield.
