    I’m not fussed about the ‘Spoons either so let’s say meet in the Seven Stars when it is scheduled to open

    Who knows, Dutch courage is a funny thing.

    Ooh, there's a challenge that needs responding to (assuming that I'm still up for that when it opens at 17:00)!

    Yes, I was doing a little virtual exploration in hope of finding some justification for the massive outlay in train fares and time that it would take for me to get to Rugby.

    Looking at my notebook from 2014, the last time we had a Pubs Galore crawl in Rugby, it took me just short of two hours on the train to get there, and just over 90 minutes to get back to Sheffield, at a total cost of £17.70. Since then the trains from Tamworth to Rugby have been retimed so that instead of waiting there for 15 minutes it is now 50 minutes, and the total journey is now 2 hours 26 minutes. The return journey, in contrast, is almost exactly the same duration as it was nine years ago.

    Surprisingly, the cost of the fares has not gone up by as much as I thought - just an extra £2.70. So, perhaps I'll be coming to this one after all.

    That would be great if you can.

    Have you tried splitting tickets at Derby (as that's often the cheapest way to travel between West Midlands and Sheffield or vice versa)?

    Is the Derbyshire Wayfarer still available? Cheap travel from Sheffield as far as Burton.
