According to the 'pedia

Marston's is a British brewery, pub and hotel operator. It operates 1,568 pubs in the UK,[3] and is the world's largest brewer of cask ale.[4] 80 per cent of profits come from the pubs division. It was known as Wolverhampton and Dudley Breweries plc until 2007 when it rebranded as Marston's.

I think that Wikipedia is way out on that date. When I lived in Whitwick in Leicestershire from 1976-1982 my local was a Marston's pub - they even ran a coach trip to Marston's brewery in Burton-on-Trent

If you read the article, you'll see that Badlad's statement and your memory are both right.

Hi,
Anywhere but Mendip. Wales North or South, peak district, Yorks, Midlands. We'll ague about the beer later. Whatever it is we'll drink it!

It will be men-dips, I wonder if bookies can take bets on it, but I doubt i will get good odds. At least we have northern explorers forum now, if the website would actually let me buy a ticket that is.

It makes sense from the organisers point of view to keep it there anyway as they know the place works for them. Perhaps an option is to lay on a coach for us Northerners at a cost of course, but would be cheaper than driving down ourselves.

P.s. not quite sure why I hyphenated men-dips, but I like it so it's staying. Spell checker thinks it's right!
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)
