They can OOOOOHHHHH the Chairman too.

I'll start practising! Put me down to come, weather permitting!

It is about a fifty minute drive from Chester. Not motorway but a good dual carriageway onto the island. Benllech is very easy to find.


50 minutes?! It's 45 minutes to Chester from me in Rhos! And multimap reckons it will take me 50 minutes to get to Benllech...

It's about an hour from Chester to Bangor, so add on a bit after that to get over to Anglesey.

Aye. Alternatively, you can do it in 45 minutes, and you might then get a present from that nice Mr Brunstrom.

I'm probably going by train - and I notice Benllech lacks a station. Is it easiest to go to somewhere like Bangor and bus it from there?

It is easiest to take a train to Bangor and then to ring me for a taxi! I may have underestimated the time to drive from Chester but it really doesn't take me more than an hour home from there. Mr Brunstrom has not sent me any speeding tickets yet because I never do. smile.gif

Cool, thanks Petra smile.gif . I'd better start looking into getting my train tickets soon : I think the cheap tickets go on sale any day now!...

edit : have just checked : tickets are available up to the 25th Feb, so I guess my tickets will be available in about a fortnight...

I'd like to do this one but there is no way I can drive it. So I think its a train to Bangor. Hubby and Kids just need to learn I need weekends away for myself.

I'm not sure she's willing to drive all the way to Burwell though to pick you up!! LOL

(If it transpires she is, then she can pop down and give me a lift too!! wink.gif)

I was thinking of taking the train from Ely to Bangor! LOL

I think Hubby is too busy with Lent. He's being "Told" I'm going. Petra and I have some unfinished business with a recorder and soprano duet with nice continuo part (not realised) to sort out. I need a Garklein!

I know dear Nat has the reputation of beingexcessivley kind but driving to Easy Anglia, then popping to London before returning to Wales is a little excessice!

What all the way from East Anglia, or would you rather I get the train from Ely first and make your life slightly easier. We are talking Ely other side of the country and not Ely Cardiff!

In my experience it takes nearly as long to go from Anglesey to Cardiff (or vice versa) as it does to go from Anglesey to Ely, Cambs. Not as pretty a drive in the latter case though!!!
