At the end of 2017 the scores were as follows:
Pubs in database : 1,840
Pubs known to be closed : 487
Pubs visited : 1,212
Pubs visited in 2017 : 132
132 is no-where near enough, but it is the highest annual total since 2004 when I did 320. The following year I pretty much gave up regular research trips, and in any case I was out of the country for six months. As you can see from this blog, I restarted weekly research in September 2017. If I can keep going, I hope to do over two hundred visits in 2018.
