Birmingham To Hinton 13Th August?
Posted 07 August 2011 - 10:52 AM
I may not have access to a car on Sat Aug 13th, and I'd like to get to Hinton to try on / buy a rig ... can anyone suggest the best way of getting nearby for a pickup, or is anyone going from around Birmingham? As far as I remember it's a bit out of the way, I'm guessing there aren't many convenient bus services that will drive a couple of kilometers up a country road onto the airfield ...

Check each service as they dont stop at all stations.
Get on at Snow Hill or Moor Street in the city.
Get off at Banbury and get a taxi - can't give a cost
There is a closer station; Kings Sutton, but it may be more difficult to get a taxi. Or you may have to book one from Banbury or Brackley. Or if you're lucky you could ask the DZ or the seller to collect you.

I usually do not do Kings Sutton as there are just trains once an hour, it is closer but when you arrive you are in the middle of nowhere so if you have not organized a lift before you are stuck.
Saying this the locals are very friendle and I nearly always get a lift back to the station end of day.
