April’s Amble will take us to the beautiful city of Bath.
The plan is to get the 10:26 train, arriving at 11:34.
Please contact Veronica (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further details.
This month’s Amble is to Abingdon. We’ll be catching the Swanbrook 853 service to Oxford from the Royal Well, departing at 11:00 and then getting a connecting bus to Abingdon.
We are going to Weston Super Mare on Tuesday 25th June. We will be getting the 10.26 train (direct), arriving at 11.21. We shall be meeting others coming from out of the area in the Duke of Oxford, Oxford Street (which opens at 09:00). A fish & chip dinner (avoiding those pesky seagulls!) will be the order of the day. The return journey will be left up to you as there are plenty of trains (changing at Bristol TM). As a guideline, we will probably get the 18:40.
The July Ale amble will visit the pubs of Exeter.
We will depart from Cheltenham at 10:03. For booking purposes, please book your return ticket to Exeter Central (changing at Exeter St. Davids). We’ll be returning on the 17:52.
The amble starts in the Old Firehouse (New North Road) from 12:00 and will visit several pubs en-route to Exeter St Davids. The approximate distance for this amble is 2 miles, so you can get the train from Central to St Davids (for the Great Western Hotel) if you wish.
We are getting the 9.48 train from Cheltenham Spa to Kidderminster, changing at Worcester Shrub Hill. We will then get a bus the short distance to Bewdley.
For others coming from out of our area, our train arrives at Kidderminster at 11.10. We have a short window to catch the 1125 direct from the station. I suggest we meet outside the King & Castle (by the station) or if you are earlier then inside. The alternative bus is the 2 from the bus station (about 10 mins walk).
If we miss you then we shall meet you in the Great Western in Bewdley.
September ale amble to Malvern. Please note the change of date.
We are getting the 09.48 train from Cheltenham Spa to Great Malvern.
A visit to the Great Welsh Beer Festival in Cardiff. Over 120 beers and 60 ciders will be available at The National Cricket Training Centre, Sophia Gardens, Cardiff.
An all-day ticket costs £7 for card carrying CAMRA members. See their website (HERE) for full details.
Please contact Veronica for further details.
In October Cheltenham Ale Amblers will be heading to Lichfield.
We are going on the 10.16 from Cheltenham to Lichfield (changing at Birmingham New Street) and coming back at 18.44 (changing at Birmingham University).
The November Ale Amble heads across the Severn to the border town of Chepstow.
We shall be getting the 10.45 train arriving at 11.26. . If you are coming from another area then we shall meet you in the Bell Hanger, (Wetherspoons), 9â€“10 St Mary Street (not far from the station). Our train arrives at 11.26 so we shall see you shortly after that. Norman from Cardiff/Bristol has just been to Chepstow and has kindly offered to guide us. I am aware that the micro pub (Queen’s Head) doesn’t open until 5 pm – however on prior notice we *MAY* be able to get it to open earlier. The train back will be 18.46 or 19.17 – I leave it to you.
