Title: Bradfield 61/62 Bus
Creator: Will Larter

The 61 bus goes from Hillsborough Interchange, opposite the Rawson Spring. It goes via Wisewood, Loxley, Bradfield, Dungworth and Stannington, arriving back at Hillsborough 40 minutes later. The 62 does the same route in reverse. There is a £2 all day ticket available so that you can get off and on at any point. In effect, the pub crawl can be done in any order to suit the time of day - the published order is how I did it with some friends between 5pm and closing - the buses are less frequent in the evening but run hourly in both directions through the day. See for a timetable and leaflet about the route.

Warning: late at night the bus can run ahead of timetable, so you either need to get to the stop five minutes early or let the driver know which bus you are catching so that he waits for you.

The Rawson Spring (JD Wetherspoon) (1)
A good starting point if you've time before the first bus from stand H6 just over the road. Stays open late, too, so if you're still thirsty after the last pub...
Old Horns Inn (2)
Good beer range but tables are set for diners - ten minutes' walk downhill to the Plough.
The Rose & Crown (3)
A friendly two-roomed village local, known as Minnie's. There's a bus stop outside in one direction, though you can also flag the bus down if going the other way round.
Peacock Inn (4)
A few minutes' walk from Minnie's, there is a bus stop in between which would do for either. Time for both pubs between buses.
Plough Inn (5)
The bus stops outside. The public bar is to the right at the top of the steps, but to check out the beer range you'll need to go into the main lounge and dining room.
Royal Hotel (6)
The bus stops right outside the pub in this quiet backwater of a village.
The Nags Head (7)
The bus stops are a few steps along the road, outside the reach of the street lights, so be careful after dark.
