Three years in Britain doing this blog   5 comments

The third anniversary passed yesterday.  The last year was difficult, starting as it did with me in the hospital with multiple fractured ribs and vertebra, torn ligaments (from which I am still recovering) and a hose sticking out of my chest to reinflate the left lung.  Good times.

We had new neighbours that were a joy, and I eased back into running.  This update, though, shall focus on the business at hand: pub visits.

I hit 280 new pubs in the last 12 months, bringing the overall total to 810.

Pubs by County

Wiltshire 147 last year (147 all three years)
Oxfordshire 91 (276)
London 12 ( 41)
Gloucestershire 8 ( 11)
Glamorgen 6 ( 6)
Somerset 6 ( 6)
Hertfordshire 5 ( 9)
Cambridgeshire 4 (221)
Merseyside 1 ( 1)

Buckinghamshire 0 ( 24)
Suffolk 0 ( 19)
Essex 0 ( 11)
Bedfordshire 0 ( 6)
Cornwall 0 ( 6)
Northamptonshire 0 ( 5)
Kent 0 ( 4)
Norfolk 0 ( 4)
Caernarfon 0 ( 3)
Lincolnshire 0 ( 2)
Shropshire 0 ( 2)
Clwyd 0 ( 1)
Gwynedd 0 ( 1)
Hampshire 0 ( 1)
North Yorkshire 0 ( 1)
Warwickshire 0 ( 1)
Worcestershire 0 ( 1)

Most by name last year:  The Wheatsheaf (6 occurrences), followed closely by the Plough and the Prince of Wales (5 each).

Most by name all three years: The Red Lion

Three near the house not to miss: The Southbrook Inn, The Gluepot, The Roaring Donkey (others as well, but Swindon is blessed).

Now, on to 1000.

  1. Happy anniversary!
    810. In 3 years! Commendable effort.
    So, you going to plan something special for #1000?
    A meet up perhaps?
    I’m up for some drinking and talking bollocks 🙂

  2. Closer to 1000 I’ll start making noise, but 800 and 700 slipped past without notice so no promises. Many hate this blog, anyway, so maybe I’ll just announce on a run and see what happens. Dunno, but thanks for asking.
