Yes, I felt fine on Thursday morning. Thanks for your concern.

I was going to dump these next few photos into my IndyMan post (be patient, be patient), but I don’t want you getting confused.

A late start, a wander into Crewe for a healthy breakfast and black-as-death coffee at Lily Cafe,

Turkish breakfast contains your veg for a fortnight

and a stroll round the cultural highlights of my new favourite craft town.

Fans of neatly kept terraced houses are in for a treat.

And street art fans will be thrilled. Press the play buttons.

Don’t press play. Not a video

Nantwich Road is clearly the fun street, and goodness knows Nantwich needs all the fun it can get.

You can walk from the ‘wich to Crewe in an hour and enjoy the craft at the original Beer Dock (as visited by Pub Curmudgeon) or bargain Holts.

Even more craft

Needs a caption, rally

Anyway, enough fun. Time for IndyMan. And Crewe station.

      1. Interesting – I grew up in Nottingham, which would also be the North by that reckoning. I don’t know, but we if anything, we thought of ourselves as being in the East of England, along with Grantham, Newark, Leicester, Peterborough etc., but perhaps that’s because my mum came from Stamford. We didn’t consider ourselves to be northerners though.

        “The Midlands” always seemed to be a term that the national authorities would use for administrative reasons, rather than having any social or cultural relevance to us. You don’t often hear anyone claiming to be a “Midlander”, do you?

        No, not outside the Midlands.
        It’s not that we don’t get about a bit but we’re modest folk.

  1. It isn’t something that I’ve ever called myself, whether in the so-called Midlands or not, as far as I can recall. Are you saying that it is in your case, Paul?
