A SCOTTISH couple are celebrating their wedding anniversary with a pub crawl around Huddersfield.
Mary and Steve Deans from Aberdeen took on the Transpennine Rail Ale Trail between Stalybridge and Batley on Saturday.
The couple were inspired to visit pubs in and around train stations in West Yorkshire after seeing them featured on TV programme Oz and James Drink To Britain.
Mary, 40, said: “When we saw the trail on the TV we thought it would be the perfect way to celebrate our 12th anniversary.”
The couple stayed at the George Hotel on Friday night before travelling up and down the line around Huddersfield on Saturday.
They enjoyed pints in the Station Buffet Bar in Stalybridge, the Railway Inn in Greenfield, the Riverhead in Marsden, the Swan in Slaithwaite, the King’s Head in Huddersfield, the Navigation in Mirfield the West Riding in Dewsbury and the Cellar Bar in Batley.
