Real Ale Magazines

Hello everybody
I was wondering if those of you living in the Northwest (say from Cheshire up to the border, and including West Yorkshire) would be good enough to name any local real ale magazines which CAMRA or other people publish. I am trying to find more detailed and local sources of info for pub visits and trips out than simply relying on the GBG all the time.
Many thanks in advance. I know I could probably Google away for an hour or two but thought it might be quicker to ask here.

It's the Stockport & South Manchester Camra mag - pretty excellent it is too.

Well, the magazine is excellent - the website is just a text version of the articles.

That's a bit modern!
There was a Victorian lawsuit in which the widow of a brewery worker sued the brewery. The chap had fallen into an unguarded floor-level copper and boiled alive (you can see a small one at one of the Black Country breweries, now with a recent-looking guardrail.) The judge found that if her husband hadn't wanted to take the risk he needn't have taken the job, and found against her.
I wouldn't mention it, but it's the history of Real Ale.

It dates from the early 1940s. It makes a fundamental point about road safety that is rather more relevant to some other groups I post to.
A modern example is the provision of central reservation barriers on motorways and similar high-speed roads.

I'll be in the Furness area soon and there look to be plenty of good places to visit. Can you let me have your top 5 pubs in descending order please Chris :-)

A good rule of thumb is avoid Barrow.

Well yes, but the Ambrose on Duke Street is doing lots of good beer including Belgians.
If you do have the misfortune of visiting Barrow you can now get good beer. There also a Wetherspoons which is cleaner than an average WSpoons but there's the usual pump clips advertising phantom beers hassle.
Ulverston's always been better for beer - Barrow's an alcopops town.

Prince of Wales, Foxfield (railway station outside front door) Manor Arms, Great Broughton (bus door to door from Prince of Wales) Prince of Wales, Foxfield (railway station outside front door) Manor Arms, Great Broughton (bus door to door from Prince of Wales) Prince of Wales, Foxfield (railway station outside front door)
Others will have a longer top 5 pubs list but Furness is the next branch area to ours and I don't know many other pubs very well.
Just off to Foxfield now!!!

And the fact that in there we've never had a beer that wasn't 'off' in one way or another.

And the Swan at Ulverston - personally visited just for you, about 4 hours ago!
5 beers from Hawkshead, including UPA (Ulverston Pale Ale) a mild and three other Northern beers

As well as those mentioned by Chris, I'd heartily recommend the Anglers, Haverthwaite and White Hart, Bouth. Both these pubs are just off the A590 as you enter the Furness Peninsula. Two pubs to try in Dalton are the Brown Cow, just below the church, and the other one's the Black Dog, about a mile outside of town, but possibly one of my all time favourites.

Thanks I've actually found out that we'll be stopping near Ings so the Watermill is on our list. I guess that is a little further NorthEast. Any other "musts" in that direction?
