    According to numerous sources on the internet (so it must be true / untrue / government propaganda / the divine will of the FSM) Gary Barlow, once famous, bought a large house in Cheshire… it never really specifies where… he then went on to buy Delamere Manor (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps/place?ftid=0x487afb1ca8f7892d:0x7c01760cdd6dffd1&q=delamere+manor&hl=en&sll=52.37482,-2.396854&sspn=2.070552,0.546467&ie=UTF8&ll=54.001312,-5.932617&spn=0,0&t=h&z=7) …. which he sold several years later for a whopping profit. In fact, I think it’s on the market now for sale or rent (http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-to-rent/property-33442670.html)

    However, I can’t find evidence that the house he bought is the disputed one (http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=53.255806,-2.699694&sll=53.800651,-4.064941&sspn=6.881357,14.941406&num=1&t=h&z=19)

    The take that member who lived in plumley was either Jason or Howard.

    Really sorry we never made it folks. We were bogged down in a whole world of faff, moving house. Looks like you had a blinder though. Nice day for it too

    After 2.5hours is not early. Some of us have a 15month old to entertain 8)

    is he still using “i have to go to John Lewis” excuse?

    mtb’s were 100mm max travel and everyone used vert-pro’s the first time he used that excuse.

    I said bye to 5 people and shook hands. TBH I may have been swayed and stayed if I’d remember to bring some money as I didn’t fancy sitting there whilst you all munched at the food break. πŸ™

    Next time -could we ride that ravine thing? πŸ™‚

    So, to summarise:

    Hora in ‘dog ate my homework’ style excuse shocka

    followed by

    Hora in “I appear to have come out without my wallet” shocka πŸ™„

    ? I thought a social/relaxed pace would be circa upto 3hours hence I only packed my side pockets for stuff!

    Anyway, at least I showed my face binners πŸ˜‰

    I can confirm that there was indeed a whole world of faffing by Binners on his move over to Ramsbottom. Sorry to have missed it I was looking forward to meeting everyone I haven’t as of yet!

    That may also be the case.
    But I know for a fact that Gary lived in the very large house by the station (with indoor swimming pool) because I made the curtains for the lady that bought it from him.
    Cough – I need to get a life.

    Can I just say that ‘Ton’ was indeed cheered up but nearly had a heart attack in the process (only kidding).

    Can I just apologise now for the Gary Barlow thread hijack. If I’d have known, I’d have started a brand new thread, and it would have been the most popular I’d ever begun. 😳

    anyhow, I’m still convinced this is the place, or at least one of them. His brother still has a roofing contractors place next door.

    Yeah, but the cake (the BFOs brought by GraemeJones) were bloody lovely. There’s a picture of them on the original thread. Man, but that guy can bake

    nbt,Thanks very much πŸ˜‰ the BFO’s might be on the cards again! I’m up for the TJ ride on the 13th if I’m allowed. I can bribe people with aforementioned BFO’s and Carrot Cake if need be. πŸ˜€

    Cheers for the ride people, I buggered off half way round as I had family crap to do. As for the Wirral lad offering to meet up again, havent had internet till now, so nothing organised. Cheers for the offer though. Some nice bikes there too. Apologies for my squealing rear brake.
