15:45 Having travelled through the soon to be closed Farnworth tunnel broke our journey here. Fairly quiet, CAMRA discount offered without asking. The five of us must look the part.

Sunday and I was on a train that called here so it would have been rude not to break my journey. A good welcome, and Camra discount offered automatically.
