Anyone know anywhere cheap? Or even better, anyone local willing to offer a floor for me(+others probably!) to crash on?

The hotels over at Newark airport are fairly cheap and the smog isn't as bad as it looks...HONEST!! Of course, Newark airport is over in New Jersey...so that mightn't be very convenient for you.

There's a possibility I can help - but it might mean sharing a taxi back to Glossop unless anybody's planning to remain sober enough to drive home..... smiley - laugh Thought not.

Isn't Glossop on the train route across the Pennines or does it miss it? That's running again now isn't it?

Peregrin, what's your definition of cheap? I know prices are dearer dahn sawf than they are up here. There are quite a few cheap & cheerful B&Bs and motels belonging to different chains that charge by the room so you could share. As soon as I get back I'll look into it, compile a list and post an email addy for everyone to send for details.

Glossop is indeed reachable by train, (though our branch line is a dead end which turns into a rather nice cycle track just outside town) but the last train gets me home by midnight which isn't much help for a proper night out.
The YHA's actually quite a good prospect, well placed, modern and reasonably priced. I trust Granny to look into the possibilities so we can make informed decisions. Cheers smiley - ok

Hmm...
Is the last train back completely across the pennines still midnight or just one that stops at Glossop?
*beginning to have the awful feeling that she may actually have to drive to Manchester*

Depends where you want to get to. Trains to Leeds run every couple of hours through the night but I think the Sheffield ones stop by midnight too. You may need to check out some timetables.

Family life having changed somewhat over the past week I can now offer beds (read: bed, camp bed, sofa bed) to three people, with the advantage of transport assuming everyone can fit into MeAndyG's Fiat Cinquacento (sp?) I hope.
Posting this to the sign up here and places to stay threads...

OK, with a little help from theTrainline, trains to Leeds leave Manchester Piccadilly at 11.22pm, 11.50pm, 1.42am, 3.43am, 5.44am and 6.44am so that should be late enough for most of us to return to Leeds. smiley - winkeye

If we're thinking of taking the MMU flats option, perhaps we should book soon.

Amy, I'm going to post in the Sign Up thread an email address for people to send for all the details and also update the main message.

I don't think it would go down well if we all booked the MMU flats separately. It makes more sense if we book in groups of 5 or 10.

I'm happy to coordinate this if you want.

Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you Amy, I would be very grateful if you could co-ordinate the accomodation, RL is bogging me down a little at the moment - family problems. Who'd 'ave 'em!

Sorry to hear that Granny. I hope everything turns out to be ok.

All right, you lot. Look lively now! You at the back, yes you Ormondroyd, pay attention.

Who wants to stay in a university flat? Put your hand up and keep it up until I say you can put it down.

Umm... but it depends who else is staying there? If none of the people I know are staying there then I'd get a late train but if other people I know are then I might stay... smiley - erm

If I'm bringing a friend should I be raising two hands even if they're sleeping on the floor in my room?

No, that would be one hand but I don't think the university will be too keen on someone staying for free.

Would your friend like a room of their own?

I would point out that smiley - erm privacy is not usually a feature of these places. Thin walls etc. smiley - blush Not that I'm suggesting... Oh dear, I had better stop there. smiley - biggrin
