my suggestion a6 to just short of hathern then a6006 til its hits the salt route and foloow that till it connects with the a607 which goes into gratham

this by passes melton mowbray and for the most part travels along a ridge

salt route is ancient roman road and not on most sat navs or maps but its is on ordinance survey maps

If I come, I'll probably meet you guys in Skeggy, since I'll be at my mums about 30mins away. It will probably be a last minute call though, as I'll be in Sheffield with Fam before then.

Ok, my bro and myself will now be meeting you guys in Skeggy, making the trip from Sheffield and then going on to stay with my mum who lives down the road in Louth. I'm not quite sure where that car park is in Skeg though and it's not showing up on google maps for me? I'm sure I'll find it. See you guys there.

To let you EM ers know I have just had confirmation from the Barley Mow, all is well and they are expecting us about four ish.

C'mon folk, do come along if you can. Don't even have to RSVP if you don't want to, just turn up at any or all of the locations.

Matt. The Car Park is at the end of South Parade on the left, opposite the right turn into Barbara Road. It's just South of the end of the Boating Lake. Google Maps doesn't show it for some reason.

If you come down Lumley Road turn right at the Clock Tower Roundabout, about 500 yards later you'll come to a " No Through Road " ahead sign, turn left there and head for the sea.

Please remember to stop..........



Have you seen the Lincolnshire Lounge ? Don't stay off the radar, come on in and have a look !

Next Event - TBA

Look Here ! - TBA

Thanks Nige, I did a search on google and found the postcode for it, so I'll stick that in the nav and with the help of your directions, I'm sure I'll find it. See you there.

Sorry I didn't make it today guys, was running a little late coming back from Sheffield and then the rain and wind deterred me. I hope everyone who went had a good day.
