Weekend of 26th -28th July
Main drive on Saturday 27th.


Main base Halifax, West Yorkshire. There's a new Premier Inn just opened, several decent pubs and restaurants and a safe car park.

www.broad-street-plaza.co.uk

http://www.premierinn.com/en/hotel/H...ax-town-centre

Outline Plan

Friday
Couple of beers and a meal at a local restaurant/pub for anyone who is arriving on the Friday and staying over. Although I live locally and Matt is in Leeds, we'll be happy to meet up with anyone and sort something out.

Saturday
Meet 10.30-11
Drive 11am
Stops en route somewhere for chat/photos etc.
Lunch around 1pm (pub) in or near Holmfirth
Drive and further stops for chat/photos
Return to Halifax for a bit of downtime before the evening lash up

Meet at Wetherspoons for a pre-dinner drink. Evening meal at 3 Olives, drinks around town for those who want to indulge!

www.3olivesmezebar.co.uk

Matt and I went recently with our respective partners and we had great food at very reasonable prices. Thought it might make a change from the almost obligatory curry, but if anyone has strong feelings about this please add your comments!

Possible route - this takes in some cracking roads and is centred on Holmfirth as a lunchtime stop.

https://maps.google.co.uk/maps?saddr...6,8,9&t=m&z=11


Sunday is usually a quiet checkout and people usually head home, but if anyone wanted to meet somewhere for lunch I'm sure something could be arranged.

Hope we have a great turnout. The emphasis is on the social side of things rather than tearing up the countryside or showing off our cars, but we do like a pretty spirited drive! More details will follow, but please feel free to comment or ask any questions.

Gav & Matt
In. Will sort hotel etc this week.

Given that I'm coming from Laaaandan I'll be there Friday night. Does the hotel have a bar? Might be the best bet (after getting some grub)

The hotel is part of a modern development which is full of bars and restaurants, so if there is a hotel bar, then it's like as make no odds if the meet is there or at one of the bars.

The most likely venue (speaking for Gav without consulting him here) is the Wetherspoons underneath the hotel (which is at ground level) as it is nice, cheap and prominent.

That's fine. Spoons will do you a breakfast for 0.18 or something like that.

A proper breakfast too Good stuff.

Can't believe how cheap that hotel is! Assumed it was price per night till I got to the payment screen. Result as that covers the fuel I'll use on the sat

Same here! Bargain!

I didn't book the breakfast though because last time we used a Premier Inn the all-you-can-eat breakfast was a bit shoddy. This time I'll have a look first. And who is Spoons?

Wetherspoons.... Nationally recognised cheap beer pubs. No music allowed. Often home of tramps who buy 1 cup of coffee and 16 sugars at 05:30 and then sta there until 16:00 when they are beaten and hounded out by children with fake ID's.

This one is quite nice though, really.

Not to mention the queue of alcoholics at the bar to buy double whiskeys at 09:00!

Right. Next question. Can anyone who lives in that area tell me whether any of the 3 ESSO garages stock Supreme Diesel? The website lists:

Belmont S/S, Sowerby Bridge
Halifax S/S, Skircoat Road
Tesco Express Ovenden, Keighly Road

Edit: Belmont and Tesco Express don't. The phone number for the Halifax one is wrong, so can't call them to check.
They all list Supreme unleaded but don't mention diesel at all, not even the regular stuff!

Good to have you on board! There is a Shell garage about 5 minutes away and a Sainsbury's that definitely does super unleaded, but not sure about diesel. I'll check a few more places if I get chance.
