A fantastic opportunity to enjoy some of the local drinking establishments of the East Lancashire Railway whilst absorbing the breath taking scenery of the Irwell Valley as we travel by steam train. Whilst all the bars will have a host of real ales they also offer a variety of refreshments to cater for all taste buds.
Meet at 11am Bolton Street Railway Station, Bury BL9 0EY at the Trackside Bar, Platform 2
PLEASE NOTE: we intend catching the train departing from Bolton Street Railway Station Bury at 1155 hours
We depart on board a steam train which will run along a stunning 12 mile journey, carving through rich landscapes with plumes of smoke billowing in its wake. We will be transported through tunnels, over viaducts and past the scenery and greenery of the Irwell Valley.
You may wish to bring your own refreshments for the outward bound train journey (40 minutes duration).
From the train stations to the public houses it is between 5-10 minutes walk.
Please note whilst Tanya will be the volunteer co-ordinator for this event, it is the individual’s responsibility to ensure that they board and get off the trains at the relevant stations as it may not be possible to keep everyone together on board the train.
Dogs: This event is dog friendly (Tanya will be taking her loveable border collie Ozzy)
