Anyone for a meet - North England?

Further to Fiona's thread I'm more than happy to arrange and contribute to a regional meet in this part of the world. This may well fall flat on it's face but if there's interest then we can take it further.

I'm thinking in terms of no more than two hours drive (each way) and if anyone doesnt drive then maybe lifts or pickups at the train station can be arranged. For this part of the world I would suggest we include Yorkshire, Lancashire, Cumbria, Durham, Mersey, Manchester. I also appreciate it could take more than two hours for someone to travel from the north, say Carlisle to the Peak District but we've got to start somehow. Maybe you think that's too large an area? To glean some idea of interest can you add a post with name and your suggestions for venues. If we get enough interest I can post a Poll to decide where. Possible dates, we'll worry about later.

This is my old home ground

If you are including Manchester, make sure to have a look around Salford Quays.

Re: Anyone for a meet - North England?

Well, I'm certainly up for something around that area. Spend a fair bit of time in the Peak District anyway, so not a million miles away!

Re: Anyone for a meet - North England?

OK - just to summarise we've got interest from ASD, Markulous, PurplePleaser, namllihs, Tigress, Spxxxx and myself. That makes seven which seems a manageable number. Thinking caps on now for places to go.

Re: Anyone for a meet - North England?

As said if every body goes for York I can sort out some places that should be good for snapping, and be a guide to get us from one place to the next. Also any info about photography in the Abby etc. Incidentally I found a real cool place today which is a massive old rambling(in places very over grown) cemetery, seems very interesting.
