    When did I post that? I can't find the post and I can't remember what I was going on about? :oops::confused::D
    Am I giving a tour or are you?

    I'm still up for it, but in a passive sort of way - I don't have the capacity to organise anything myself at the mo IYSWIM, but would love to attend if time permits.

    Click on the up arrow in the quote of your original post - that'll take you to when you originally said it.

    I think you could lead it - you'd have to dress as the Pied Piper though to make sure none of us got lost. :cool:

    I see now from where that quote came from that we're doing a Manchester tour. That's your territory barleybabes :D I seriously would like to do the tour but you'll have to be guide :)

    But you're from Manchester or the area, whereas I'm not a native. :hmm:

    I'm from Burnley you numpty :rolleyes: if you want me to take you up Pendle Hill that's a different matter.

    You've lived in Manchester for yonks, you must know it well. You definitely know where the good buildings, museums and libraries are :)

    Burnley? Thoroughly depressing place. :(

    If we're feeling clueless we could maybe get booked onto a Skyliner tour, which covers some interesting architecture and history.

    I've got a fairly hefty book on the architectural history of Manchester - I could read it again and do a history tour.

    Or we could do a pub crawl - but in all the roughest pubs in town to see which one of us gets a kicking first. :hmm:

    We could go to the undoubtedly shit football museum - I'm not sure if it still has that hideous statue of Michael Jackson though.

    It would be good to go to Pendle Hill one day though - although it must be a pain in the arse to get there.

    I think you should tell us what you want to do Shirl.

    Is it highbrow culture stuff where we look at stuff, stroking our chins to pretend we understand it. Or museums. Or buildings. Or something more debauched like what goes on in the underbelly of Hebden Trades Club.

    Train to clitheroe and your guide will pick you up at the station :)

    It is now but it's surrounded be some lovely countryside. I could see Pendle hill from my bedroom window and there was a farm at the bottom of our street.
    Not much going for the town now although I think the football team is on the up again.

    I was hoping for a bit of architecture appreciation and some vulture and a pub lunch with nonalcoholic beer :D

    I don't think we have much in the way of vultures in Manchester, but I might be wrong.
