A transport question, inspired by yesterday's release of station usage data...
Among National Rail stations that had at least 100,000 entries/exits in 2018/19, what is superlative about Blackrod, near Bolton?
It's the only station that shares its name with a Parliamentary title?

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I was determined to do Lancing Beach Green this morning, come hell or high water - a phrase that was very nearly literal - this morning as I missed the opportunity last week due to work. My headphones died five minutes in, my running jacket absorbed water like a kitchen sponge, I didn't check my wat...

A further clue: Excerpts from Act IV, Scene 6 were incorporated into another work of art - it's that work of art I'm looking for.
That'd be I Am The Walrus by little known indie band The Beatles, correct?

What's so odd about Bangor City and Juventus male football teams this season?

Re: Christmas Park Challenge 2019 - 14th December - Chiswick Park

I now have the added challenge of going to a panto at 18.00 Oh no you're not! :D :D :D Annoyingly I'm not going to be able to attend as I'm going to be up in London drinking heavily with friends, however depending on the state that I'm in around 6pm I might pop my head round the door of the pub and...

Knocked 41 seconds off my PB earlier today, and my wife wasn't even volunteering at the course for me to show off to!

Re: Dastardly difficult trivia quiz

If ? = four years and ! equals 15 years, what does & equal at time of posting? This one's been bothering me, because I have another question of my own to post!

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

Went back to Lancing Beach Green, my usual. Had some problems with my hip being stiff for a few days prior so left my "lucky" shirt at home, not wanting to waste it on a failed run. It was a nice cool day, slight breeze, and I fell into a good pace early on, staying close enough to a holistic pacer*...

Re: Tube Challenge parkrun league...

I'm pondering a bit of tourism next weekend, can anyone recommend anywhere that's within two hours (rail) travel from Brighton and doesn't involve much non-Southern/Thameslink/Southeastern/Great Northern travel, please?
