The Round Britain Pub Crawl

The Round Britain Pub Crawl  is a record of a week-long  train journey to visit pubs listed in the Good Beer Guide in the years 1975 to 1984, plus a few pubs that were not, but were close to the station. Details of the trains, pubs, breweries and their beers with prices paid are listed along with a link to the Pubs WhatPub entry or other internet source. Where the breweries have closed a link is provided to the listing on the Brewery History Website. A daily commentary also includes anecdotes from along the way.

A statistical summary is provided so that comparisons can be made between years e.g. on average prices per pint. It is in Excel format and not really suitable for viewing on a mobile.
