Driving to meet friends in different villages for a beer restricts beer consumption. So a challenge was given to William to come up with a three pub session involving no cars and just buses.
He came up with a most innovative itinerary.
It involved the following bus journeys, which looked rather optimistic that it could work. But it did! Brilliantly!Bus 40 10.57 hr Cuckfield to Haywards Heath (HH).
Bus 31 HH 11.57 hr to Newick 12.19 choose pub (Crown/Bull etc). (35 mins)
Bus 121 Newick 12.55 hr to South Chailey 13.06 hr - Horns Lodge (22 mins)
Bus 824 South Chailey 13.28 hr to Plumpton Half Moon 13.38 hr (36 mins)
Bus 166 Plumpton Half Moon 14.14 hr to HH 14.41 hr.
What a lovely bus, complete with full seat belts for all seats.
Thanks Chris for an excellent journey and friendly service dropping us off at The Half Moon in Plumpton.
Verity and Andie looked after us in The Half Moon, quenching our thirst with the appropriately named "Poachers Moon" ale.
We passed The Plough and its memorial to Polish airmen who flew from a temporary airfield here in World War 2.
Yvonne pulled two pints of what I considered the best beer of the day -- "Hophead" by the Sussex-based Dark Star brewery.
What a very fine day, meeting some great people, doing our bit to stimulate growth in the UK economy and making an extra voluntary tax contribution (excessive beer duty and VAT) to the Chancellor's coffers. Job well done William! Many thanks.
