Due to the travel restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 outbreak, this event is cancelled. Meeting time is 10:45 under the departure boards at Manchester Piccadilly. We'll be getting the 11:01 Northern service to Blackpool North, which stops at a number of stations: https://traintimes.org.uk/manchester/preston/10:30/2020-04-04 The cheapest ticket is an off-peak day return which costs £13.40. There are frequent trains back so we won't aim to get a specific one, but we should be back in Manchester by 16:30 at the latest. The walk will be through a park, all of which is paved or tarmac. The pub is about 10 minutes from the station by the quickest route, so this walk will go ahead even if there is some rain beforehand. If the weather is fine, we'll take a longer route round.
