With the "retirement" of our previous tour guide, Egbert Mackereth, we have also taken the opportunity to rename the guide as a tribute to Marple's greatest benefactor, Samuel Oldknow.
The guide no longer includes our own ratings as these can be very subjective and depend on what you want and expect from a local pub. However, there is provision for regulars and visitors to have their own POSITIVE comments added to each page. Only positive comments will be accepted and you must be prepared to have your real name displayed against them. Anonymous comments will not be accepted and inclusion will be at our discretion.
When the Pub Guide was first created the Internet was a fairly new thing to many people and most pubs did not have email addresses or web sites. That has changed greatly now and we hope to be able to interact more easily with Landlords and Landladies to keep details up to date via email. We would encourage them to "say something about themselves" and let us know if there are any omissions or errors on their page. We wil also include two extra photos on each page if they are provided and web links will be included if a reciprocal link to the Marple Website is added to their sites.
If you are a regular at one of our pubs then please let the Landlord/lady know about the new guide and ask them to check that we've got all the details correct, or let us know yourself if you are well enough informed.

Please let us now what you think of the revamp and if you have any difficulties with the pages or suggestions for improvements.
