NORTHERN POWERHOUSE II - Wed 21st August 7ish PM Littleborough OL15

Recommended Posts

As mentioned on the thread for Northern Powerhouse Classic, I can't make it on Tuesdays anymore.

 

I'm sure the now longstanding tradition of eating a slab o'cow at Glossop spoons will continue regardless, but would anyone be up for a more Northerner version?

 

Proposal: 2nd or 3rd Wednesday of the month, so as not to clash with NP Classic.

 

Place: The White House Pub & Restaurant, Littleborough, OL15 0LG:

The White House stands like a land mark high on the Pennine hills, with panoramic views of the surrounding moors and Hollingworth Lake far below.

 

The old coaching house dates from 1671 and is situated 1,300 feet above sea level. The Coach and Horses (the original name) is where “the young bloods of Littleborough having guarded the mail coach from highway men would seek recompense for their labours with vigorous applications to strong liquors”

Motorway access isn't great but who wants to drive on motorways? Has big car park and beer and food.

 

First meeting on Wednesday 13th Feb? 7ish PM?

 

Any takers?

Nice one all.

 

Just a note to anyone who isn't sure: guarding the mail coach from highway men then seeking recompense with vigorous applications to strong liquors is not compulsory, although it is encouraged.

Had planned on coming but missus Moog has put her foot down. I am off on mega mission on Sunday and apparently I can't just play cars all week.

 

Definitely be at the next one - will pencil it in already. Mx5 time next time.

If you guys go, I'll be there.

Lift givage and dosh standage for Conrad within the realms of possibility, too.

 

I bet Ghosty will show up, too, if it comes together.

I'd like to do this, but it's just a bad week for me.

 

Have fun all.

      I've not been before but apparently it's a bigun.
      If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.

      Any shiters going to the Beaulieu International Autojumble this year? Always an interesting day out even if its mainly overpriced Austin 7 parts. 
       I have generally found that although pickings are slim for 70's/80's/90's shite, that if you do find it it is normally a bargain as it's just shite to the seller and "not for a real classic".  The paddock is always a laugh to see how much someone rekkons they can get for a well polished MG Midget made entirely of Bog, and the Bonhams tent is just funny to see how the upper 3% live.  What are other peoples experiences? 
      I'll be going on the Sunday from Oxford, would be good to meet up with other shiters at the Ale tent

      Its been a while since we last had a meetup of southern shiters, and I wondered if anyone was interested in a late summer gathering?
      A little while back I was over at Littlehampton, on the way I spotted a potential meetup point:
      https://www.brewhouseproject.co.uk/
      Its a barn on the Worthing side of Arundel which is a coffee roast house and brewery, and do food too. Just off the A27, by that weird junction where it seems like two different sets of civil engineers approached the same spot from opposite directions, with wildly different ideas about what the road layout was going to be like and made a rather hasty compromise?
      There appears to be a decent sized car park too?
      Maybe one saturday or sunday in September, but not the 28th and 29th? Any takers?
