Rose & Crown Winter Pub of the Season & Walk

Join us for the presentation of Winter Pub of the Season award to the Rose & Crown, Allgreave at 1pm on Saturday 6th February. The Rose & Crown has recently been sold by Robinsons and is now a freehouse run by Ian, Luda & Freya.

This social event consists of two parts - the presentation and walk in association with Bollington Real Ale Ramblers & friends. You can either just come along to the lunchtime session or join us in the 9.5 mile walk.

We will be entirely at the mercy of the weather with the biggest problem being snow preventing the bus getting to the Cat & Fiddle. Therefore, please keep up in touch either via the CAMRA Yahoo group or Facebook in the week before plus check on the day.

Please email social@eastcheshirecamra.org.uk if you are planning to come along so we can advise the Rose & Crown of numbers.

The walk

9.5 miles starting at the Cat & Fiddle, via the Rose & Crown and finishing at the St.Dunstan in Langley. Transport either under your own steam or via bus. Perfectly okay to just do the first 4.2 mile stage or second 5.2 mile stage assuming you can arrange your own transport to/from the Rose & Crown. The first stage is mainly downhill but the second stage is via Shutlingsloe with ~250m of climb. This is a winter walk so please come prepared with sturdy walking boots, warm clothing, torches & waterproofs. We may have to re-consider if there is a lot of snow around as that doesn't half slow you down. It will be dark for the last hour of the walk.
