Well, the parents said yes...

There will be an afpmeet in Bedford on Saturday August 26th.

The Plan:
2pm - meet up in the Pilgrim's Progress.  I haven't been there long 
enough to
know what it's like, but my dad seems to think there's a good range of 
beers.
Some time later - go shopping for second hand books.
5:30ish - pub again for food.
Sunday - recovering from the previous night's caffeine overdose.  A trip 
to the
museum may be an option, if people are interested.

If this sounds vague it's because I'm waiting for pub advice from the 
master
himself, Gid Holyoake.

How to get there:

I recommend either train or bus.  Driving is an option, but Bedford is 
not a
good place to get lost in.

For maps, try http://www.streetmap.co.uk and search for Bedford.  
Alternatively, there's one showing the one way system on Gid and Suzi's 
site at
http://www.netcomuk.co.uk/~gidnsuzi/whereis.html

Train:
From/through London - there's regular trains from Kings Cross Thameslink. 

Check http://195.92.21.203/bin/query.exe/en for details.  There's also 
less
regular but much faster ones from St Pancras.
>From anywhere else - well, if you happen to be on the Midland Mainline 
from
Derby to St Pancras, they stop in Bedford.  Otherwise it's a bit tricky.

Leave by the exit on platform 1, go out and turn right onto the main 
road.  The
road takes a sharp turn to the left at a little roundabout.  From then on 
keep
going straight ahead.  The pub is at the junction where this road becomes 
a
pedestrian zone.


Bus:
>From Oxford/Cambridge - get the stagecoach X5.
There's also busses from other places, I just happen to know about that 
one.
National Express stop in Bedford as well.

>From the bus station, head out towards the roundabout.  Go left.  The 
pub is on
the opposite corner of the junction where the pedestrian zone starts.


Car:
I pity you.  Bedford has one of the most tortuous one way systems in the 
country.  If you are coming by car, let me know by email where you're 
coming
from and I'll give you directions.

My mobile number is available on request, so you can find out where we 
are if
you're late.  I can meet people at the bus or train station if required.


Crash space:
More or less unlimited - I can even provide beds.  Let me know if you're 
coming
so I know what to expect.  Bring a sleeping bag if you've got one.

Finally, if there's anything I've missed, it'll probably turn up in a 
later
announce.  Watch this space.  Email me at mailto:s.m.mckever@durham.ac.uk 
if
you're coming so I know what I've let myself in for.
