This will cover the many mills and landmarks covered in his Manchester study day. More details in January Newsletter with firm times. Bus or train travel and an intensive walking day is planned.


AUCKLAND PROJECT AND BOWES MUSEUM

WEDNESDAY MARCH 25/THURSDAY MARCH 26 2020

We propose to take 30 people to the Bowes Museum and the Auckland Project, including Auckland Castle and Palace.

We will be staying overnight at the Morritt Arms at Greta Bridge which we have used in the past for overnight tours.

The Andrews coach will leave Baslow Village hall at 9.30am prompt on Wednesday March 25th 2020 and drive straight to the Bowes Museum near Barnard Castle Co Durham where we will have lunch.  Then we will have a tour of the Museum and leave late afternoon and drive to our hotel at Greta Bridge.  The rooms are all doubles but we have negotiated a singles price in a double room also. The price includes a drinks reception and dinner for our group in a private room and full breakfast.

We shall leave the hotel on Thursday March 26th immediately after breakfast and aim to get to Auckland Castle and Palace before 10.30.  A tour of the castle and Palace will follow a private talk -finishing the morning with a soup and sandwich lunch in the Old Library especially for us.  We can then tour the Auckland Tower, the mining museum and the rest of Bishop Auckland village in the afternoon.

We will aim to leave at 4pm and should be in Baslow around 6.30pm.

N B  the cost quoted  includes, dinner bed and breakfast.

For two people, either couples OR friends sharing the same room at the Morritt Arms the cost will be £150 for the room.

THAT IS £75 PER HEAD SHARING.

For singles with their own double room it will be £110 each.

On top of this ADD PER HEAD  an additional £90. This will cover travel with an Andrews coach (£40 each person), coach parking charges, guide introductions, entrance to Bowes, Entrance to Auckland, Drinks party at hotel, and lunch at Auckland Palace.  THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE LUNCH AT BOWES.  I hope this is clear.  Your final cheque as a single will be £200..  Your final cheque per head as a double sharing will be £165 per head. That is £75 plus £90. Therefore for two £330.00.

(The cost of the coach is £1195 for2 days therefore travel is expensive).

Please look up the Auckland Project, Bowes Museum and The Morritt Arms  on their own websites.
