The record of my progress in visiting the landamrks on the Pub Crawl Ride:
These unique named pubs were originally part of the Pub Crawl Ride which was used during the inaugural Brit Butt Light rally in July 2009.
We visited this pub in Stalybridge while we were collecting Round Britain Rally bonuses in the summer of 2009. It as the distinction of having the longest pub name in Britain.
