Thurstyfest 2 Travel Details

This weekend sees 'Thurstyfest 2' at the Rose & Crown in Thurstonland, and if last years festival was anything to go by it should be an event well worth visiting. The festival promises 56 beers 'from around the realm', ciders, a hog roast and live music. The pub is allied to the Brass Monkey Brewery so look out for their beers during the three days.

It is not the easiest place to get to however. The closest railway station is Stocksmoor but involves a fairly arduous uphill walk to the pub. May be the best way is to use Huddersfield Bus Co service 341 from the bus station (click on the number for the timetable).
K Line runs an hourly service from 1215 daily from Honley Rail Station returning 1225 etc to Honley Station, their service no. is 911 (but no Sunday service).
There is also a free bus put on by the festival running from St George's Square (outside The Head of Steam) and The Lockwood pub. The times are as follows:
Friday: Head of Steam 6pm, The Lockwood 6.15pm. Return 10pm.
Saturday: Head of Steam 1.30pm & 6pm, The Lockwood 1.45pm & 6.15pm. Return @ 6.30pm & 10.30pm.
Sunday: Head of Steam 1.30pm & 5pm, The Lockwood 1.45pm & 5.15pm. Return @ 5.30pm & 9.30pm.

The festival itself has been extended this year, starting at noon tomorrow and running all weekend, which is good for those of us who have other commitments on Saturdays!!!

(Thanks to Hutch for pointing out me that there is a bus to Thurstonland, when I thought there wasn't.) MAP
