    Default Black Country

    Starting to plan a few days out for when life gets back to normal. Me and the boy Jimbo had a notion of doing a Black Country extravaganza last year which the bug put a stop to.

    Got some of the usual suspects and a couple off my to-do longlist;

    Great Western Wolverhampton (to start from the train!)
    Old Swan (Ma Pardoes) Netherton
    Vine (Bull & Bladder) Brierley Hill
    Beacon Hotel Sedgley
    Fountain Inn Tipton
    Park Inn Woodsetton
    Jolly Crispin Upper Gornal
    Old Bulls Head Lower Gornal
    Waterfall Cradley Heath
    Lamp Tavern Dudley

    Any other suggestions?

    That looks like a great itinerary - I'll chuck The Shovel Inn into the mix as well.

    Well if you're in the Jolly Crispin it'd be rude not to pop over the road to Britannia Inn, and of course there's The Fountain across from the Old Bulls Head. In Lye there's also Windsor Castle. It all looks very reminiscent of the Black Country crawl we did a few years back when everyone OD'd on scratchings
