I feel I may have done Bolton something of an injustice. I’d assumed it to be comparable to Gateshead, but it’s actually quite nice. There are some unattractive concrete lumps, of course, and too many empty shop units, but the place certainly isn’t Gateshead.

And I learned of James Stanley. 

Piccadilly Tap II

A return visit was made to the Piccadilly Tap last night. 

The place exudes coolness, but also happens to have an impressive range of beers. 

My second in command didn’t quite get this though. Well, not immediately.
