    I think Opp North is favourite as we have been in the South (more or less) for the last two meetings and East Anglia before that.

    We have been in the Lakes and Dales before so a trip up to Northumbria sounds like a good option - not least because I've not been up there with a camera before and I think it's a landscape that would suit my dusting off the 5x4 for...

    Oooooop North

    I kind of of quite fancy North Umbrialand - whatever it's called. I believe it's close to that border thang, near bonnies something or other...

    But, I wouldn't want to get to close to that Scottish stuff. Otherwise, I will want to go straight to the Cuillins, Or skye...

    I know that's far too far any way...

    I would like to discuss this further please. That is not a no! just not sure peeps.

    If it's Northumberland (or anywhere Northish) then it would probably be my first APUG Meet-Up. Turning 49 in March so a good excuse to spend my last year as a forty something doing enjoyable things.

    Second thoughts - March, North of England, Enjoyable? Pack the thermals and waterproofs.

    ISTR Les lives up that way, so maybe he can give us the skinny on the best places to photograph, drink etc....

    I'll come along. I live just a smidge north of Newcastle, and can probably help out if anyone needs a lift from a railway station.

    FYI it's traditional in the northeast to go out in the coldest weather wearing practically nothing.My youngest sister once went for an interview at Newcastle University, and as she was on her way back to the station in a taxi these three girls wearing outfits that they'd just thrown on, and nearly missed, walked across the road in front of them. The taxi driver said to my sister "you'll not be needing your coat if you come here like pet"..for men a beergut the size of a zeppelin and a tattoo of the Newcastle United club crest are de rigeur like.

    From the lansdcape point of view, Alnmouth is not the best spot on the coast, too sweet and picturesque. Further north toward Berwick offers more isolated and, IMO better landscape as well as access to The Cheviot Hills and some excellent countryside and coast just over the border.

    There is one decent and relatively inexpensive B&B just a few miles from where I live but it will probably not be large enough to deal with the numbers. I'll check it out as well as looking for other places if there is an interest in the area that I have suggested.

    Why not somewhere central like Birmingham or Nottingham? At least everyone has an equal chance of making it.
