  • Wolverhampton on the Train Friday 19 April 2024

    Long standing Chester Branch member and Rail Ale Trail aficionado Craig Papworth will be leading a tour of the pubs on the Shrewsbury to Wolverhampton line on 19th April.

    Departing Chester at 11:36 to arrive in Wolverhampton at 13:11 (direct train) heading straight to the superb Great Western pub (the grey peas and bacon is highly recommended).

    Then getting the train back to Shrewsbury stopping at Codsall, Shifnal, Oakengates and Wellington to visit up to 10 GBG pubs and 1 new(ish) micropub.

    Finally getting the train back from Wellington at 20:07 to arrive back in Chester at 21:22 (direct train)

    There's also the option of a quick one in {{pub:id=SHR/16895,title=Tap and Can]] in Shrewsbury before getting the train back to Chester for those who feel like something extra.

    There is a significant saving by splitting the train ticket at Shrewsbury: Chester - Shrewsbury, Off-Peak Day Return £13.20 (£8.70 with railcard) Shrewsbury - Wolves, Off-Peak Day Return £12.90(£8.50 with railcard)

    Please contact the Social Secretary, Mal Pulford on ku.gro.armac.csac@slaicos or The branch contact on ku.gro.armac.csac@tcatnoc to register an interest in joining this event.
