Heroes: Day Out On The Rail Ale Trail

We're taking 10 Heroes and their plus-ones on a real ale adventure to Rawtenstall

Published on August 4th 2011.

Heroes: Day Out On The Rail Ale Trail

STEAM trains, real ale and fascinating historical titbits. If that sounds like a great day out, make sure you enter the draw for a free place on our next Heroes trip.

We'll be taking 10 Heroes and their plus-ones on a day out on the East Lancashire Railway's Rail Ale Trail which runs from Bury up to the village Rawtenstall. 

The steam train stops off along the way at exceptional pubs, a brewery, and a temperance bar – the oldest surviving one in the country, in fact. Blood tonic cordial, anyone? It's a four-hour trip that takes in the pubs of Summerseat, Ramsbottom, and Rawtenstall before returning to Bury.

We'll have a qualified guide with us so expect funny anecdotes about beer, brewing and local history. And for good measure, you'll get a bottle of ELR Ale to take home (or more likely, drink on the train on the way back.)

The Rail Ale Trail trip will take place on Friday 12 August, starting at Bury station at 11.30am.

We've got complimentary tickets to giveaway to 10 Heroes and their plus-ones.

To enter the draw for a place, just email heroes@manchesterconfidential.com with 'Rail Ale Trail' as the subject line, before Friday 5 August. Please include your telephone number. We'll let you know on Monday 8 August at the latest if you've got places.
