Finally having some time off work, and time to be spent in the UK rather than tripping off towards Italy or other warmer pastures, I felt it was time, indeed past time, to catch up with friends and so on for meals out. I then hit on a great solution, combine the meal with the journey plan and also a place to stay. The journey for the day, or indeed the next two days is from North Yorkshire to Shropshire. Consequently, a detour along the Woodhead Pass is more than acceptable. This allows for a meal and and an overnight stop in the grounds of the Dog and Partridge Inn
The Dog and Partridge Inn is a typical country style pub located at the Barnsley side of the A628 “Woodhead Pass”. I had emailed the owners to ask about pitching up for the night in the car park. Furthermore, explained I would be joined by friends for lunch and then more friends for dinner, thus generating some business for the pub, whilst offering a solution to my requirements for the day!
Once pitched up behind the pub, the first thing to notice, apart from the scenery, sheep, ducks and so on was the wind – it was a bit of a howler, but this is February after all.
A nice bite to eat at the Dog and Partridge Inn
A good selection of food is on offer, along with an open fire. The latter helps to create a really welcoming feel to the place. Regulars at the Dog and Partridge Inn told me the place was closed the day before due to snow. However, in the event of me getting snowed in, I had plenty of food on board!
Despite the wind and the rocking motion of the van, I slept like a log! I woke the following morning to clear blue skies for the journey West. I noted another motorhome pitched up for the night at the top of the pass. They were still tucked up at 10 a.m!
