    Good timing for the Beacon; we arrived at that time on a Saturday and had to wait for opening.
    Hoping to use the time constructively we sought out the famous local 'orange chips', from nearby chippy but, alas, that was closed too. I'm sure you'll fair better!
    Good luck PuGers, one & all, for landmark tour. If only we'd managed to get 'beercam' beyond the 'what a brilliant idea!' stage...

    i believe RAR has offered to get the beers in, young Venster.

    I am looking forward to this - and longing to get back to reviewing again - have about 60 reports to write-up

    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    I guessed it might be you. Cheers mate, you're all heart. Just hope your liver lasts the day after this week's efforts.

    There are 10 trains per hour in the evening between Wolverhampton and Birmingham New Street. An off peak single costs £2. The journey takes between 16 and 25 minutes, depending upon which service you catch (local or Virgin).
    Waes hael!

    Careful, I don't think the cheapest tickets are valid on Virgin trains. I know our plusbus tkts weren't but, after a gallon plus, we jibbed it anyway.
