    I reckon after a strong start you will settle on a few good ones to revisit and so I'll go with 22 different pubs/bars.

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

    Good stuff, made better by the fact that when they returned from (was it a christening?) at the start of the next episode (maybe series!), the decorating had not moved forward from those two scraped holes - they evidently gave up & went down pub.

    In case you're wondering, I've got a tab open to freelivesportstv.com & have a poor quality feed in an unknown language, but we're 0-2 up!

    Ricky Tomllinson is hated round here , back in the early 70s he was one of a group of flying pickets who desended on local building sites to persuade the workers to strike by means of baseball bats , threats of violence , knocking people off ladders , damaging work etc , a few locals were hospitalised and Tomlinson and his mates got a few years jail , he his still trying to clear his name but wont come anywhere near Telford , people round here have got long memories

    Pah, semantics old chap - merely indicating it was two-nil away from home, a scoreline which we, ahem, managed to hold on to

    Well what a weekend. I am still recovering !

    You were all quite close to the mark but to be honest I am struggling to give an exact number as things get a bit blurry at the end of the night !! I have definately got 20 but I am sure some more will come back to me. We did spend a long time in some places and also revisited a couple.

    Have to say a pub crawl down the Shankill Road is quite an experience. I have a couple of bars to add to the site when I get chance.

    Cheers,

    Del.

    Glad you survived it Del. Did you call into this place and find out whether it really is a pub or just a doss house?
    I've just joined Alcoholics Anonymous - I still drink, just under a different name.
