BRAPA - An Amble Down to Hambleden
"Errrm, I think you MIGHT have gone past the stop...." I said to the nice but totally incompetent bus driver (he'd already not known the price for a single to Hambleden / Mill End, or any other stop off points for that matter) as he raced along the main roa...

BRAPA Special - Drawing a Blank in Great Yarmouth
The family, that is myself, Mother BRAPA, Daddy Chauffeur BRAPA and even Sister BRAPA (not a nun) travelled down to Great Yarmouth for Uncle Roger's funeral on Tuesday evening, arriving at 9:30pm. Of course, I'd researched late night BRAPA potential with th...

BRAPA - Dawdling in Audlem
I was STILL all "beered out" as I took the train over them dark hills to the west of lovely superior Yorkshire. And now I've lost half my readership, we'll continue and all felt a bit like a replication of Aston/Nantwich/Crewe day early on, what with change...

BRAPA - Brampton Miles & Chesterfield Smiles
Two full days recovery from Cornwall was nowhere near enough, despite my revolutionary cheese and cucumber sandwich and cranberry juice diet, but it would be nice to have a day out with Dad as I hadn't had a pint with anyone I knew in a very long time. It w...

BRAPA - Summer Special Day 6 - Guten Mawgan from Cornwall
It was Monday morning, and the longest BRAPA holiday to date was finally at an end, well almost, as I packed my bags and walked into Newquay 'proper' to locate the bus station. This was the deepest I'd been into Newquay, and despite some people telling me i...

Falmouth doing it's job Sunday was my last full day in Cornwall for 2017 GBG Pub Ticking, and I was determined to make the most of it after only four ticks the previous day despite being out and about for 12 hours! With three pubs in the Guide, Falmouth see...

BRAPA - Summer Special Day 4 : The Hard Truth in Redruth
So, after a fantastic Friday where I managed six ticks and didn't feel any the worse for wear, I was probably feeling a little bit complacent on Saturday morning as I lined up by usual array of breakfast snacks, when it suddenly occurred to me "what if trai...

BRAPA - Summer Special Day 3 : Truro Love
Onto Friday then, as it turned out my favourite day of the Cornwall holiday.  I was getting into a routine by now, and at Par, I knew I had to cross the bridge but what a funny railway station.  It has so many staff manning (womanning) it, it feels like it'...

BRAPA - Summer Special Day 2 : Si-rates of Penzance
After a predictably muggy night, I woke at 8am and got organised for the day ahead, which was a nice little breakfast routine I got into of draping all my maps, books devices etc. over my bed, in amongst coffee, juice, bananas and weird little pastry things...

BRAPA - Summer Special Day One : Pukey in Newquay
Perranporth beach, making pub 1169 seem better As the plane touched down (well, smashed onto the runway with a crunch and a puff of smoke), I was still glad I'd made the decision to fly rather than 'train it'.  £59 return, 1.5 hour flight, total no brainer!...
