Hi,

Now that Globe Farm is Shut where do people normally stay around the Standedge area these days? Looking for B+B.

I haven't tried it yet but I've booked into New Barn, Harrup Green Farm, Diggle 01457-873937. It appears to be just down the road from Globe Farm. I'll be there on the night of 11 June but not back home until 29 June. If you want me to let you know what it is like I'll send another message on my return.

New barn is o.k. There is also Sunnyfields
B&B in Diggle. Great view of the moor, bit expensive at 30.00 for a single, foam matt-
ress bed & breakfast a bit on the stingy side. Big plus, there is a great pub 100 yds
away, The Diggle Hotel. Both places will pick you up from the car park at the main rd at the end of your day. Tel 01457 874030.

Another alternative that I'm planning is to catch a bus into Marsden and stay there for the night

There's an hourly bus service from the Great Western Hotel which is only a few yards from where the Pennine Way crosses the A62

John,

Do let us know about Forest Farm. I am staying there in July.

I am particularly interested in how to get there from the trail.

Thanks!
