As a Lancashire lad now living in the Midlands, I can't get any decent pies locally. So now buy online from Bowens in Chorley. lovely meat & potato, plus pork pies covered in lovely jelly. I remember Yates Greer's in Leigh baking lovely pork pies in the 50s.

Your are right I do get out and a bout a lot, but todays adventure was by my Hybrid car.
Today me and the missis drove up the M6 to Kendall, then came back down via Milnthorpe, Carnforth, past Tyson Furys house at Hest Bank and Morcambe.
