When: Wednesday 18th August from 6pm until 11pm.
Where: The Shoulder of Mutton, Calverton, Milton Keynes, MK19 6ED. 01908 562183.
The Shoulder of Mutton prides itself on its fine selection of ales, beers and wines, delicious home-style pub meals.
Dinner can be ordered from 6pm to 9pm.
The pub has a small car park in front, and a large car park directly behind. The landlady requests we use the rear car park if possible.
The village of Calverton is hidden gem just outside Milton Keynes. Nestled in picturesque Buckinghamshire countryside, yet only minutes from the busy metropolis, and just off the main A5 road, you feel like you've been transported into the rural countryside miles from anywhere.
As this date in the middle of the school holidays, I selected this pub as several footpaths are within easy reach on foot, and has a children's play area with climbing frame. The XBOXCrew junior members are likely to attend during the early evening.
The pub is on the route of a 4 mile circular walk, should anyone wish to attempt it. Click here for details.
I plan to publish some new caches within walking distance for the event. I'm hoping to create new two circular walks (shorter that the existing 4 mile one). A short one, for those with little legs, and a longer one, for those with bigger strides.
Why: Ask Alibags - she made me do it.
Who: Well, anyone is welcome, but we expect most people will be from Beds, Bucks and Herts. Car and Bicycle parking available.
What: This is the thirty second of an ongoing series of monthly, mid-week-ish regular events at various locations handy for natives of the three counties to talk caching, plan expeditions and (have Alison) decide who's organising the next one.
