£30 season ticket in 1996. I lived in LN6 from 1987 until I left for uni in 2000.

very sad to return to Mansfield when I do as lincoln has only got better Mansfield is a shadow of its former glory.
I wouldn't know what it's former glory was. But I suspect the demise of the mining industry didn't help. Mind you, neither did the split from the NUM.

1960s and 1970s was it peak time - hosiery mills and pits in full charge then.

I think it was 1992 when they closed all the pits killed the area and has never recovered

Gin & Tonic for me these days 🍸

Although during the winter months, a nice pint of Real Ale always hits the spot with a pub lunch 🍺
Have a go at Poetic License Northern Dry gin. Aside from buying into the mosquito thing with gin and tonic on holiday in Grenada, I've never bothered with gin. Had some of this and I'm a believer!
Distilled up near Sunderland but can be bought in some supermarkets. Note, they have a gin bar in the city should we be able to visit this season :cheers:
