Due to popular demand, we are delighted to announce that we have added another Guided Rail Ale Trail to our 2016 calendar. 

The "Follow the Malt Trail" tour will take place on Saturday 13th August and will journey into picturesque Ramsbottom where "trailees" can hear of stories that have stood the test of time, sample a selection of fine ale, go behind the scenes at the Irwell Works Brewery and indulge in a delicious lunch at the highly regarded Owens restaurant.

Tickets are £34.50 and include a full line return ticket, tour from a Blue or Green Badge Guide, ale sampling and a pub lunch.

We're sure this one will be sell-out, so don't miss out and book now.
