Title: The Alan Winfield Memorial Pub Crawl
Creator: Will Larter

To commemorate the life of Alan Winfield, prolific contributor to Pubs Galore and pubcrawler extraordinaire, who died 27th July 2018, I devised this pub crawl in and around his home town of Stapleford, near Nottingham. I did the crawl with Alan's brother Steve on 5th September 2018.

We started from Ilkeston and used the "my15" bus several times. This bus accepts the Derbyshire Wayfarer ticket, which I also used for my train from Sheffield and my train back from Long Eaton via Derby. Other buses used were the 21 (from the Man of Iron, which would have been part of the crawl but it was not open when we arrived at 11:25) to the Sherwin Arms and the "i4" from Bramcote to the centre of Stapleford.
