    Timewise, it is virtually the same Basingstoke to Preston or Lincoln, although Lincoln is generally cheaper, being nearer. Depends a bit on finding the best advance fares. Halifax is worse on both counts.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Yes neither ruled out , cheap deals permitting, still unlikely though , so I don't want to influence a vote I am probably unlikely to attend.

    One of the Halifax options from London is to "Change at Preston". Perhaps the crawl should be 6 or 7 pubs in each!

    I travelled that line from Bradford when my trip up the Settle-Carlisle line was scuppered with no explanation from the dire Northern Fail. It's great for rainy overcast Pennine scenery!

    I've yet to vote and will probably decide - if I go due to cost - based on travel time.

    I too voted for Lincoln despite being unable to fathom out quite why this city, which is resolutely in the Midlands, made it onto a Northern crawl...

    Yup - voted for Preston. I can't comment on the pubs but Preston is nearly an hour nearer by train and is direct rather than requiring a change. It's cheaper too.

    Default Hot off the press

    Final score: Halifax 7 - 10 Preston.

    I'll do a poll for some dates next, but a shorter 7-day one because the cheap train tickets will start to go soon.
