Pennine Way Pub Trip

Ah the plaintive cry of the foolhardy friends who are walking the Pennine Way (weekend at a time):

"The B&B we’re staying at is miles from the pub, and we’ve got loads of wet kit to carry… Do you fancy meeting us for an evening in the pub and then taking some of our kit home to Manchester so we don’t have to carry it tomorrow?"

After rush hour it’s only about half an hour to their location on the far side of Hadfield (aka Royston Vasey), so it’s no hardship at all.

A fine pub was found as well – return visits are planned.

Such was the gratitude for not having to carry the excess kit tomorrow, they insist on paying for my meal, which is very kind and quite unnecessary.

That said, let it be known that this transport and carriage service doesn’t extend to the entire coastline of Britain...
